About Miss Maker

At Miss Maker, myself and the team pride ourselves in offering everyone the opportuitiny to find their own creative escape.


Combine this with our hand picked range of courses, a personal and patient approach to teaching by all our tutors and small class sizes, you can be sure you will feel pampered as well as inspired when you visit us.

I'm Clare and as well as running Miss Maker I enjoy teaching all aspects of dress making.

I have always loved all things creative, especially anything to do with fabric and textiles.


My grandmother (pictured above wearing one of her creations), who was a brilliant seamstress, provided inspiration for me throughout my younger life.


She bought me my first sewing machine at the tender age of seven and a life long love affair was born.


The skills I learnt from her have stayed with me and throughout the years I have expanded my interest across many forms of sewing, needlework, embroidery, dressmaking and machine sewing techniques.


When the opportunity came in 2009 to take voluntary redundancy, I took it, deciding it was now or never to embrace my passion for creative sewing and spend my time enabling and inspiring others to do the same.
