Classes

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced sewer, there is a sewing class that’s just right for you…all levels of sewing are catered for!

Come and learn new skills in a fun and friendly environment: we offer classes in patchwork, machine embroidery, bag making, software, dressmaking and general sewing.  Be part of our sewing community on Wednesdays by joining in the fun at our social sewing day, where we create, stitch and gather – bring along your your own project to work on…or not – sometimes the chatting gets in the way of the sewing, and that’s ok!

Beginner sewing classes are held on Monday and Thursday mornings and Monday evenings – begin your sewing adventure in a fun, friendly and non-threatening atmosphere!  We aim to get you comfortable with sewing – it’s not that scary, we promise!  Fridays are devoted to beginner patchwork – if you want to learn how to make your own quilts, this is the best class for you.  Kid’s are also catered for, with our regular Thursday and Saturday Kid’s Club.

Don’t feel comfortable with joining in a group?  That’s ok too!  Ask us about some one-on-one classes for individual attention.

Please book in for your classes, to help us with our planning.  Full payment is requested at the time of booking.  You can find our booking policies below.  Please take the time to read these and become familiar with them.  That makes the process easy for everyone. Requirements lists are provided once payment is received.  Thanks for cooperating with this…it makes our sewing classes run smoother for everybody!

Book into a class soon…we can’t wait to get you started on your sewing journey!
