Do you have a sewing machine stuffed in a cupboard
making you feel guilty that you don't use it more?

Have you got a fabric stash that you’re nervous to use or cut, in case you mess up and can’t get more of it again?

Seen a dress or bought a pattern of a style that you’d love to make for yourself and not sure where to start?


Maybe you’ve tried sewing something before but it was a dressmaker’s disaster?


Or perhaps you used to love sewing or it’s something that you did as a child and
it's been ages since you stitched anything that you don’t even remember how to thread your machine?

Vee Tanner - Sewing Teacher

Everyone should be able to sew well

I'm Vee Tanner.

I'm a costume maker and sewing teacher.

I've been sewing since I was a little girl and have sewn competition ballroom dance dresses (think Strictly), wedding gowns, theatre costumes as well as custom fit clothes.

I get that sewing isn't as easy as it looks.

That's why I set up Sew Bee Yourself - so you can tap into my wealth of sewing experience so you don't have to make the mistakes I did.

I want for you to sew garments that look stunning, fit and feel great to wear, so that when family and friends ask, what shop did you get that, they gasp in amazement when you tell them proudly you made it.

I’m on a mission to get everyone sewing and for garment making to be the norm, like it was 50+ years ago.
