Sewing lessons are hibernating!
We all know the pickle the world is in right now and we all know that the best things for us to do is bunker down at home. With that in mind, UsefulBox is hibernating for the moment. Once all of us are ready to get back out in world, we'll ramp our lessons back up and get you sewing quicker than you can say Haberdashery. In the meantime, have a look through some classes that we have available in the months ahead...or purchase a gift voucher for a friend, or yourself!

What students are saying about UsefulBox
What a fantastic lesson !! I am a beginner sewer and booked in my first lesson. Caz was very friendly and welcoming. She explained everything clearly with lots of hands on experience. I have already started recommending lessons to other people.
I gained so much knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm to start sewing my own projects! Caz is a passionate, patient and knowledgeable teacher. She helped me gain an understanding of; how my sewing machine works, how to read patterns and how to problem solve...she certainly equiped me with the tools and confidence I needed to get me started.
If you're after a professional, yet friendly and comfortable atmosphere where you can learn the fundamentals of sewing, Caz is your girl!!
I went to Caz's one day beginners sewing workshop yesterday only ever having switched my sewing machine on to make sure it worked. The workshop was great, I would highly recommend it. Caz really does start from the very beginning, covering the functions of your machine, how to read patterns and different types of stitches/seams.
