  • Have you got projects that you started but never finished?
  • Have a sewing machine that you have forgotten how to use?
  • Want to know how to cut out a pattern and make sure that the garment will fit?
  • Wish you had a couple of hours without interruption to spend on that project?
  • Would like to learn how to by actually making something with a bit of help but don’t want to go on a course?

If you have answered Yes to one or more of these questions then the Dunston Sewing Bee could be just what you need - any age, any level of experience, male or female.


Sessions are very informal and there is plenty of time to chat over a cup of tea or coffee.

You don't have to come every week - you can come along to complete a specific project or to get some help on how to do something like fitting a zip or just to experiement and try different types of sewing.


In June the Sewing Bee was delighted to receive a gift of a sewing machine and an overlocker from the Dunston Hub.


We've got patterns, books, cutting tools and a sewing machine you can use and even a variety of "Fat Quarter" cotton fabric pieces for sale, so all you need to do is to come along and be inspired!


Cost - £3 per session

Coffee or Tea 50p
