The Little Sewing Company was established in 2013 by Suzie Walker. Suzie’s love of design and teaching led her to create a business around the philosophy of ALICE (Achieve, Learn, Inspire, Create and Enjoy).  As the business grew, Fiona and Amy joined the team bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge. They were soon followed by Jennie with her boundless enthusiasm and administration skills which Suzie desperately needed!


The Team

Suzie has a BA in Fashion & Textiles, MA in Fashion Design and is a qualified teacher. She worked in the Fashion industry for several years before life took her into teaching.– a journey that continued when she started The Little Sewing Company.

Jennie has always enjoyed crafts however since joining The Little Sewing Co a passion for dressmaking has developed, some might say an obsession! Jennie uses sewing as downtime from her twin boys and is always trying something new.

Amy is a freelance costume and dressmaker who has worked on a wide range of projects from historical reproductions to bridal wear and stage costumes. Students will benefit from Amy’s wide range of skills covering many creative techniques.

Fiona taught needlework in secondary, middle & primary schools. Fiona enjoys learning and developing her own skills and techniques, as well as sharing her experience and enthusiasm for sewing with people of all ages.

Julie has a love of both hand and machine sewing. She was one of our first customers and we have enjoyed helping her expand her knowledge of sewing. She is know a very confident dressmaker and enjoys trying our new fabrics and patterns especially 'Tilly and the Buttons'. You are most likely to find her in the shop on a Saturday or during the holidays sharing her top tips.
