Beginner Sewing Workshops and Classes


We have been teaching sewing classes on a one-to-one and small group basis over the past couple of years at our store and studio but we are very much looking forward to our first ever Saturday classes which are beginning in March. We will also be continuing our classes in the mornings before store hours. 

We will be hosting one-on-one classes, small groups and Stitch and Bitch Classes too. We have allocated times for each of the classes, so all you have to do is let us know what you are interested in and a time will be allocated (or you can choose your own).

One-on-one classes - $100 for 2.5 hours. You can book as many sessions as you like

Small groups - You can book a class with two or more people. You can work on different projects if there are 2-3 people but if the number increase to our max of 8 people, then we will choose a common project to work on. Prices are as follows: 2 people / $90 each per session. 3 - 8 people / $85 each per session. This covers all material and sewing machine costs. 

Stitch and Bitch - This a group class, max of 7 students working on one common project over 2 or 3 sessions (depending on what the project is). We have a Tuesday night stitch and bitch class or we can also run this project on Saturdays if we have enough interested students. $145 per person for 9 hours (3 sessions).
