The Auld Sewing Club

Work through The Auld Sewing Club coaching book

or come with your own project to use the Paisley studio's equipment.

The Auld Sewing Club allows its members to use The Auld Atelier space and equipment to develop their sewing skills, create their own projects under the guidance of their experienced tutor, and - most importantly - sewcialise.

Everyone who joins The Auld Sewing Club is given a sewing club book and tote bag, included in the one off registration fee of £10, payable at your free trial session should you wish to join.  The club book is broken down into badges to be earned for learning a variety of sewing techniques.  After completing three projects for each badge, you will complete a project of your choice to show off your learning before being presented with your badge which you can use as you

wish but works well affixed to your club tote bag.  These are coached rather than taught sessions.  You are encouraged to work through the book independently and at your own pace, but with your tutor on hand to help with anything you need or answer any questions you may have.

Your club session can also be used to for your own purpose, though.


Perhaps you haven't got the space to cut out your fabric or set up your sewing machine right now.  Perhaps your machine is in need of repair but you have an urgent project to complete.  Perhaps you'd prefer to attempt a new project with the reassurance of assistance on hand.  In situations like these, The Auld Sewing Club provides you with the perfect solution.  You can come along to the club and choose your own projects to complete.  This is your club to get as much out of as you choose. 

And perhaps the most important thing to get out of The Auld Sewing Club is friendship, community and a shared goal.

The Wee Sewing Club

The Wee Sewing Club allows children to come along with an adult to use The Auld Atelier space and equipment to develop their sewing skills, create their own projects under the guidance of their experienced tutor, and - most importantly - sewcialise.  Both child and adult join in, working through the club material together or you can bring your own project and use the time, space and guidance for that.  Should confident teenagers wish to attend without an adult, this can be arranged directly with Lisa.

Each pair of "child & adult" counts as one participant but each will have access to their own machine.

All participants must be aged 8 or more.
