Welcome to Sew not Strawberry Jam

Sew Not Strawberry Jam is passionate about all things creative and handmade. There’s nothing more satisfying than working on a project and having something beautiful to show off when you’re finished. That’s what Sew Not Strawberry Jam is all about – giving you the opportunity to create something beautiful with your own two hands.

Owner Samantha Coates has been sewing for over 35 years, and creative textiles is something she doesn’t want to see become a dying art. From making classic cushion covers to elaborate couture dresses, there’s something for everyone at Sew Not Strawberry Jam.

Whether you’ve never picked up a needle and thread, or just want to freshen up your skills and make something fabulous, Sew Not Strawberry Jam offers one to one tuition on sewing, soft furnishings, felting, patchwork and lots more.

As well as tuition, we hold Sew Laid Back sessions every Thursday where you can work on your own projects in the studio.  Sam will be on hand to help and advise. Retreat and immerse yourself in a few hours sewing at leisure, with full use of our sewing machines.

The sewing studio is set in a gorgeous country setting near Tenterden, Kent – the perfect place to escape, relax and try your hand at something new and creative.
