Do you have a machine you've barely touched? Jump into this online sewing class from the comfort of your own home, and you'll be whizzing away in no time.

Learn how to sew beyond just a standard straight line! We'll explore how to thread up, how to sew curves and seams, as well as how to get to know your machine from all angles.

Your friendly and experienced teacher can answer all your questions and show you the different dials, features, and components to help you get the most out of your machine. Our classes are private for you and one other friend, so you know you'll get personal interactions with your teacher.

This is such a productive thing to do at home that will teach you something new and give you the confidence to use your machine for all sorts of sewing DIY projects.

No more wondering what to do when you're bored at home, just get your machine out and keep yourself busy with some textile art.

My name is Claire and I am the all-rounder behind Couchman Bespoke. I grew up in Harlow, Essex with a creative mother and an entrepreneur father. After gaining a BA(Hons) degree in clothing design and tailoring from Brighton University, I ventured into the world and set up my company to combat the inequalities of the fashion industry I had been subject to.

By creating zero waste through pattern cutting, natural dyeing and sourcing the most sustainable cloth and haberdashery we aim to have very little negative impact on the planet and local people.
Now with 20 years of retail knowledge and 14 years of tailoring experience behind me, I feel confident in my ability to produce clothing that is timeless. Clothing construction is a great passion of mine that sits juxtaposed with a strong interest in the environmental impact of the clothing and textile industry. I aim to be a contributing factor in helping to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry whilst educating people about the issue through my workshops and trading fairly within the supply chain.
