Meet Sarah

Sew Retro sewing classes are run by Sarah Windsor. Born out of a passion for sewing since childhood, and a belief that sewing was becoming a lost skill.

A dedicated teacher of her craft, Sarah's patience, enthusiasm and professional skills have helped the hundreds of sewing students who attend her classes - no matter what their age or sewing ability.

After graduating with a degree in Women's Fashion Design, Sarah spent the 1980's developing her own fashion label, showcasing her designs first at London Fashion Week, then direct to big stores in New York, Italy and Japan.

Since starting a family, Sarah launched Sew Retro to help people develop a practical life skill, fulfil their creative projects and encourage sewing in a social, fun environment. Her classes are a perfect way to enjoy a relaxing hobby away from the daily stress of a busy life, or even to kick start a career.
