About us

Cheeky sew and sew is a sewing workshop based in the Pennine town of Todmorden, West Yorkshire. We sell handmade clothing for both men & women, a fine range of accessories such as tweed and velvet scarves, and jewellery such as bracelets upcycled from inner tubes or trouser hems. Garments can also be made to measure if you make an appointment with us to let us know what you want.


We offer a wide range of sewing and textile related courses and one to one tuition. You can bring your own machine to learn on or use one of ours, it’s all included. You can choose from 4 week courses such as Absolute Beginners Sewing, Curtain Making, and Altering & Repairing Clothes, these run on a Wednesday evening. Or our 6 week Beginners Dressmaking is proving to be popular as well as comprehensive, on a Thursday evening. If you would like to just come in for one day then our Saturday stand alone courses aim to teach you to make something in a day, or offer to enlarge your sewing skills in a couple of hours!

We are also a ‘sewing cafe’, this means that we have a range of sewing machines that you can drop in and use, and pay by the hour. We serve tea, coffee, homemade cake and snacks, but don’t have hot food, it’s more about the sewing than the cafe! Sewing cafe runs on a Thursday daytime and at least one Saturday a month as advertised, other times may be available by arrangement, please contact us.

We offer free a weekly knitting group ‘The Knit Wits’, offering cake, alongside friendly company and  crochet and knitting advice on hand.In the holidays we run family craft activities suitable for both adults and children.

We have handmade clothes, bags and accessories for sale, and also take commissions for handmade clothes, soft furnishings and knitted garments.

We have an alterations and repairs service, clothes and soft furnishings altered and repaired. We can take up your jeans, alter your prom or wedding dress, put a new zip in your coat, re-upholster your sofa or make new curtains for your home, or your caravan!

We host childrens parties and hen nights and can also host team building events or friends nights out. Refreshments and a gift are included with children’s parties and hen nights.

That’s a lot of things to check out!
