Temporary Closure

Due to national lockdown restrictions, we have temporarily closed our shop until further notice, we hope to open again in March 2021.

We are taking online, telephone and email orders and despatching daily. Our orders are delivered by Royal Mail, which may take a little longer than usual. We are also offering non-contact pickup from our shop and local delivery (within a 10 mile radius of Hatfield Heath/Bishop’s Stortford).

We are still servicing and repairing sewing machines. Again, we can offer non-contact drop off at our shop or we can arrange pick up from your home. Please contact us for further details.

Once Uttlesford is lowered back into tier 2, courses will start again. Our course schedule for 2021 is available on our website.

Rebecca Woollard Sewing School & Haberdashery is located on The Heath (Village Green), Hatfield Heath, near Bishop's Stortford (approx. 5 miles). We are located just off the main road (A1060), ground floor of the pink building to the left of The Village Tearoom. We are accessible from the M11 Junction 8 (approximately 6 miles) and junction 7 (approximately 8 miles).

In good weather, you could also park on the Church South Car Park, entrance via Church Lane on the Sheering Road (B183) and walk across The Heath. Customers who bring their own machine to courses are welcome to stop outside our shop to unload before parking, as the car parks seem a long way with a heavy machine.
