Hello and welcome to my website !

My name is Gemma Stitch and I am a glitter & rainbow addict .....   

But I am pretty sure you have realised that already ! I am mum to two lovely stinky boys aged 10 and 1 and I live in South Wales in the UK.

I am the teacher & owner of  Stitch Bridgend Sewing School. I am a professional dancer  turned seamstress and started sewing full time nearly 11 years ago, and now run my own personal successful sewing school & blog and my aim is to show others just how easy , CHEAP and fun social sewing can be ! 

I was lucky enough to be short listed for for the BBC TV programme The Great British Sewing Bee ( first one) and have recently been featured on Made By Rae , Homemaker Magazine , Love quilting , Hobbycraft , The buddy magazine & many many other features & publications. 

(I am sponsored by PRYM & AURIFIL .)

My teaching career started with one small class of local mums and now in 2020 has several weekly classes plus intensive courses , children's workshops and online classes with over 5,500 active students aged 4-89 ! 

In early 2017 I also launched the subscription service STITCH BOX UK which sends around  100 + mystery sewing themed boxes every month worldwide.

My Personal Goal is teach as many people to sew as possible , from all ages and backgrounds to bring everyone together with a common interest at an affordable price.

My classes & tutorials are based around a whole host of sewing skills designed to teach you the basics in a fun and modern way whilst making friends and becoming a part of the amazingly supportive and friendly Stitch Bridgend student family. 

This is my online sewing patterns website , full of easy beginner friendly tutorials & patterns for all ages.

Most are free , but some are low paid so we can keep the website running so feel free to click away and download as many as you like.

Happy Sewing !
