about us

makeplace has been providing sewing and crafting courses and lessons for over 10 years, teaching and helping complete beginners and improvers to learn new skills. We are a family business, connected to Anglian Fashion Fabrics and Anglian Furnishing Fabrics, trading since 1974 and have a respected reputation for stocking unusual and inspiring fabrics and haberdashery, as well as having knowledgable staff.

We offer professional lessons in a dedicated, well-equipped workspace. Our aim is that your project will be finished to a high standard within your course time. We keep our class sizes smaller so that students have more time with the tutor and projects  are more focused.

Our tutors have lots of teaching experience as well as course skills and a love of making and creating!


Classes cater for all skill levels, are generally 2.5 hours long and can be either single or multiple sessions, weekly courses e.g.  4 week or 6 weeks, at differing times during the week with day and evening courses offered depending on the subject.

Booking for the courses can be made safely online.

Please read our FAQ page for further information.
