Sewing lessons, workshops and parties for children, adults & schools

Welcome to

Sewing at the Button Box

I’m Gemma, the owner of Sewing at The Button Box.

I live in Worcester and work from my beautiful studio in my garden.  I have always had a real passion for designing and making since I was a young girl and now, I get to spend my time creating products and inspiring others.

Having just completed a series of private lessons with Gemma in order to complete a project (pair of curtains) for my daughters Wendy house bed I can’t thank Gemma enough for her help, advice and support in finishing the project.
I enjoyed the success after being a complete novice and feel proud of my achievement and all thanks to Gemma.
I would definitely recommend Gemma as I’ve grown in confidence and will certainly be looking for my next sewing project.

Gemma taught me to make a skirt and a dress I have since made skirts and dresses for my nieces and daughter
It’s great being able to give a truly unique gift made by your self
My daughter and her friend both attended the unicorn workshop and had great fun and were very proud of their makes Gemma was patient with them both and they had a super time
Thankyou so much Gemma

Highly recommend Gem and the 4 week adult workshop she runs! Learning sewing machine basics and working on your own pattern was great and she is so patient (especially when you make mistakes) I learnt so much from the workshop!
