‘I’m Tim Gidney, I’ve been sewing for over 40 years and teaching for nearly 15 years. My aim is to get you sewing accurately, creatively and efficiently (ACE). I will teach you the tips and tricks that I have learnt over the years to give you a real head start with your projects and produce items you can be proud of.’

I have been involved in the fabric trade for nearly 50 years. I have worked on theatre and designer projects as well as bespoke made-to- measure commissions.   In the past I have even been a finalist in regional and national sewing competitions!


Menswear is my main interest, but the skills I have enable me to work on many projects and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others through teaching.
