A UNIQUE organisation that teaches people to sew is dramatically expanding.

Sew Confident, a Glasgow-based company is celebrating 10 years in the business with the upgrade.

Moving from their current site to a 360 sq ft property of Great Western Road, the franchise will be able to offer double the number of classes they do now.

They will also be able to take on new employees including a shop manager.

Jenny Drew, Sew Confident Founder said: “Previously located in the Hidden Lane, off Argyll Street, this is not a big move geographically speaking. However, what it means for the business is huge.

"We are now able to offer more classes, employ more people, stock more fabric, and bring the joy of sewing to even more people. The new store is much more visible and we hope will become a hub where sewers of all abilities are inspired to pick up some fabric and enjoy making some time for themselves.”

The company, first of its kind in the UK, has taught over 10,000 people to knit, sew, crochet, embroider and quilt in the last decade.

Ms Drew added: “I believe personal and professional growth comes from doing things that are out of your comfort zone. Nothing ever changes if you keep towing the line.

"I’m constantly challenging myself and taking the leap to move to a bigger studio while introducing a retail offering at the same time is the biggest challenge of my career to date.

“In addition,  I am actively looking for new franchisees to invest in what has proven to be an extremely successful business. With three well-established locations we are poised to welcome people who want to be part of a business that helps people learn a new skill while meeting new people and de-stressing.”
