I am so excited to announce that the brand new All About The Sew sewing studio in Knowle is now open! This marks the return of face to face sewing classes for All About The Sew since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Knowle is a beautiful village in Solihull, West Midlands, full of independent shops and places to eat and drink.
The studio is on the first floor of a shared building just off the main High Street in Knowle, a stone’s throw from the church. The building itself, Milverton House, is a 16th century building full of charm and character.
The room is on the first floor and with it being an old building, the stairs are fairly steep. If anyone has access requirements then do get in touch and I can discuss a suitable alternative to access All About The Sew services.
The studio will be complete with brand new Janome sewing machines and an overlocker for you to use.

The studio (marked as the purple star on the map) is in between in between the Honey Pot Day Nursery and Knowle Smile Spa dentist. Access is via the gravel drive on the Warwick Road, towards the rear of the buildings, through a gate and up a pretty garden path. Press the intercom for All About The Sew and I can let you in. The studio is on the first floor.

Please note there isn’t any parking outside the studio itself. There is however, plenty of parking in Knowle within walking distance of the studio. The majority of the public car parks are free for 2 hours, if staying longer then charges apply – just see the car park boards and pay and display. The closest pay and display is about a 5 minute walk and is the one by Tesco on St John’s Close (marked Knowle Shoppers Short Stay on the map). Please see the Visit Knowle website for full car park details. There are also some residential roads in the area that you may find a space on (Milverton Rd, the Warwick Road itself just down from the studio entrance, St John’s Close or Kixley lane).
