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, plus unique and quirky garments and accessories upcycled from jeans, tweed and inner tubes. 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. From April 2020 we will not be teaching at the workshop but will be based at community venues in Todmorden. We are available to come and teach  your community based group, just contact us for a quote, and we offer home based tuition within a reasonable distance from Todmorden.

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

We have an alterations and repairs service until the end of March 2020 when we move premises and this finishes. We can take up your jeans, alter your prom or wedding dress, or make new curtains for your home, or your caravan, most clothes and soft furnishings altered and repaired.

That’s a lot of things to check out!
