Take a look at our educational platform and learn some new tips from Aneka.
Aneka Truman is the owner of Made to Sew. Under the Made to Sew brand Aneka teaches sewing classes from her
studio in Somerset and satellite locations in the UK and abroad. Aneka also shares a wealth of knowledge
through online classes and free sewing tutorials on YouTube. Aneka’s expertise and her ability to
successfully impart this to sewers of all skill levels, has led her channel to have over 160,000
subscribers. There are videos catered to every ability, from complete beginners to more advanced
dressmaking techniques and couture tips. Aneka helps watchers with fitting issues such as how to complete a
full bust adjustment, sewing techniques like inserting a professional invisible zipper and facing, and has
a range of simple project-based tutorials like wash-bags, bunting and seasonal crafts. In addition Aneka
has made the kind offer to record specific videos covering any sewing and dressmaking topics you need
assistance with, so please feel free to provide feedback to us via [email protected] or through
Aneka. Sew Direct is delighted to be working with Aneka to help you learn, progress and be inspired by her
informative and professional sewing videos.
Aneka launched Made to Sew in 2013, with an education from London College of Fashion and a background in the
fashion industry. Aneka started Made to Sew to help inspire people to take up sewing as a hobby, and to
teach professional sewing and fitting techniques, helping her students to create 'wow' garments they can be
proud of. Most students attend her classes to get help finishing their garments, fitting them correctly (to
their individual figures), and making garments that look more handmade and less homemade! Together, CSS
Industries, owner of the world’s leading sewing pattern brands, Sew Direct the business to consumer
platform and Aneka Truman an education specialist, we wish to inspire you to be creative, learn and develop
sewing techniques and create garments that are the perfect fit for you.
