Shop and workshop details

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Sassy Sewing is a new kind of sewing shop. Our aim is to make sewing fun and to create a vibrant community of happy crafters in our lovely Lincolnshire town. So as well as stocking everything you’d expect to find in a sewing shop including a huge range of fabric from great value stunning poly-cottons to high end (but still great value) designer prints, wools, jerseys and a few really special rolls that even we struggle to describe, we also run workshops where you can learn to make specific garments with our lovely instructors. We also run courses in the essential techniques of sewing, quilting and anything else we can think of that will help keep you in stitches.

But most importantly we want Sassy Sewing to be a place where people can come along and enjoy and indulge their passion for all things pins and needles. Come along and say hello – we’re under the archway in Horncastle market place, next to the Stables Bistro.

Find us at: 8 Market Place, Horncastle, LN9 5HB, Tel 01507 524566.

Opening times: Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 4pm.   Sunday – closed unless there is a workshop running.

Below is the workshop list. More will be added as they are sorted so please keep checking back. For more information or to book call the shop on 01507 524566 or pay us a visit or email us at

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be freely available during the workshops and we may even surprise you with a cake. If it’s a full day workshop, bring a packed lunch with you or there are a couple of supermarkets nearby that do sandwiches, crisps etc. if you prefer to do that. We’ll tell you in advance what materials etc. you’ll need – either bring with you or buy in the shop with 10% off.

Sewing machines for the workshops are provided unless otherwise stated.

If you don’t get your project finished at the workshop, cos not everyone does, you’ll be able to pop back to the shop to use one of our machines and get support with it too. The kettle will be on.

Welcome to Sassy Sewing

Here it's not just about 'how to' but also 'why not?' We're not experts, more like curious enthusiasts and this is the place where we can all learn to be successful at sewing together. Helpful (hopefully), inspiring (ditto) and we promise not to take ourselves too seriously. Let's put some fun into fabric.
