Sew With Holly
Sew with Holly was founded in March 2015
When I was little, I loved watching my Mom sew and I was in awe of the beautiful things she would (and still does) make...it was like magic! She is most definitely my inspiration and the reason I love sewing so much.
I first started sewing when I was around 7 years old when my Mom started helping me. When I was at school I knew that I wanted to work within the sewing industry and although exactly what I wanted to do kept changing (from famous fashion designer one day to jet setting buyer the next!) I knew without doubt that my heart was in sewing and fashion.
I went to longlands College and studied Fashion Design and then went on to Birmingham City University and gained an Honors Degree in Fashion with Design for Performance. My passion and love of sewing and creating is something that I hope to pass on to as many people as possible through my classes and workshops.
Sew With Holly offers a range of creative sewing and craft workshops for all abilities. From introduction to sewing, dressmaking and home furnishings to craft parties!
Based in the heart of Stourbridge town centre, with easy access from all major routes and a few minutes walk from the bus and train station.
Check out our Workshops page for more information on workshops and weekly sewing classes.
Our range of Workshops have been carefully designed so you are able to get the most out of your time with us. We run small classes of between 4-8 so that you can receive the best attention and support possible.
All workshops can be taken separately or you can book on a regular basis for a variety of classes so you can really see your progress building. For absolute beginners to sewing, we recommend the "Introduction to Sewing" class to help you get started. For those who already love to sew, any of our Workshops will be a great way to broaden your knowledge and get creative!

"I booked Holly for my sisters baby shower, she came to us and we made individual squares that she took away to be made into a blanket for when the baby arrives. Holly brought everything with her, which made it perfect for every ability, holly was fantastic and I totally recommend her. Thank you Holly."
Thank you for a superb day Holly! I was a little apprehensive at first but you put us all at ease and explained everything so well. It was a lovely day. Can't wait to wear my summer dress! X
