Welcome to Sew and Sea - Teignmouth's sewing shop.
What we do
We are Teignmouth's sewing shop, tucked away on Brunswick Street in the Arts Quarter. We're here to help you sew much more and sew much better, which we do through our courses, workshops, the shop and online. We also sell our own range of handmade products, which includes a collection of bags, cushions, aprons, and lampshades as well as smaller gift items.
Ours is a small enthusiastic business that we set up because we enjoy it. Our shop is at 24, Brunswick Street, Teignmouth for quality haberdashery, fabric, sewing machine sales and accessories and, of course - what we're really here for - our sewing courses and workshops. We also have gift vouchers if you're looking for a flexible present. Whether you're already sewing or just getting the bug, we'd love to see you in to our bright and cheery shop - we're open Tuesday to Saturday 10 am to 5 pm for you to come and browse or chat about sewing. If you can't get here in person give us a ring, email or find us on Facebook.
For beginners, we have fun workshop sessions where you can learn the basics and make some great home projects, or we can introduce you to the beginnings of dressmaking. If you're just starting in sewing we have everything to get you going, with all the essential equipment right up to the latest electronic sewing machines.
If you are already sewing but looking to enhance what you do, we have a range of more advanced courses and workshops where you can sharpen up your skills or learn new techniques, and everything you need to put them in to practice. We can service or repair your machine to keep it in tip-top condition for you, all done in house.
Because we love what we do, our advice is always free, honest and informed. Smiles and a generally cheery attitude are also included!
