About Us

What do we do? We offer sewing and upholstery classes combined for adults during the week, term time, and we offer sewing classes for adults and children weekends and holidays.

saskia_childHello my name is Saskia and I love everything handmade! I got my first sewing machine when I was about 7 years old (now I am 44!) and that is when my mother taught me to sew. I started making pencil cases which I sold to my classmates, then aprons and so on. Since then I have been sewing in one form or another almost every day of my life. A new era in sewing for me came when someone kindly gave me an industrial overlocking machine, which opened up a new world of sewing for me. More recently I have purchased a dedicated embroidery machine which is just amazing.
In between all of these delights I have also learnt to do upholstery.
I teach affordable sewing and some upholstery to both adults and children from age 5.Saskia-pickles
I run courses during weekends and school holidays, and have an ongoing drop in class three times a week.
Where am I? I operate from my home in Felden Lane, Hemel Hempstead, HP30BA. You can reach me on 01442 244764 or 07703854647, or email me at saskia@dottybobbin.co.uk.
Where is Felden? We are a rural Hamlet, on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead, 5 minute walk from the train station, within easy reach of the A41, M25, J20 and the M1, J8.

Why do I do it? To make pennies doing what I love and make others love sewing too! Work satisfaction can’t get much better than that!
