'The course was expertly led and very enjoyable. I have learnt so many skills and can't wait to get started in my own studio, making things for my home and perhaps starting my own small business because I'm so inspired by what I've learnt! I also met lovely people who were on the course too.Thank you, Louise.'

Hello and a warm welcome to the Cotswold Sewing School! I’m Louise, busy mum to two boys.

I began to sew small projects during a difficult personal time in my life. Sewing transported me to a different reality and quickly became a therapy. After a few months I decided to take the plunge and retrain as a specialist soft furnishing maker. Having a career over 15 years revolving around the property industry I’ve always had a passion for transforming interiors.

I’m now genuinely living my dream, working around my children’s diaries and needs. I want to help you develop your love for sewing too. After qualifying I set up my own limited company making soft furnishings. Although I now have a professional workroom, initially I didn’t have the budget for a workspace so everything was made on my kitchen table or lounge floor.

I understand many will not have a ready-made work room available. I will help you adapt to the space you have. Anyone can do this and everyone has creativity inside them. I have worked hard to create a safe spacious environment where you can really relax whilst acquiring new skills. Alongside working with my private clients I am excited to also offer sewing tuition. I’m really looking forward to meeting you soon!

Kindest regards

Louise xx
