Our Approach

At Craft Skills, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn to sew.  A life skill that sparks imagination, creativity, and self expression, helps with relaxation and provides a sense of accomplishment.

Embrace your craft and learn old tricks whilst trying something new.

Be bold, take risks and most of all have fun!

Becky MacLellan

Designer and Creator

I’ve been sewing for as long as I can remember. My mum passed down her sewing tips & tricks and my granny taught me how to knit. These life skills have been the backbone of my creative path as I have continued to teach myself new skills.

Loving art during school I went on to earn a BA Hons in Design and Craft and a Postgraduate Diploma in Textile Design, where I spent time working with a knitwear design company. I then had the fantastic opportunity to work for a fashion company in Tokyo, Japan. After returning to the UK I designed men’s, ladies, and childrenswear for several major UK high-street fashion retailers.

Later I completed a PGCE, a qualification to teach design to secondary school students. After having kids of my own I have continued to create, design and learn as a hobby. My goal now is to continue celebrating creativity, through running workshops and teaching people the gift of sewing. I currently work as an instructor at Needlework, Hamilton and also run classes from my home in Oakville.
