Beginners Sewing Class

Create your own stylish and original garments

Our classes are small so you receive personalised attention. By the time you complete a class, you will feel totally confident in your ability to create your own garment.

We offer face-to-face sewing classes in our Narre Warren studio, catering for Beginners and absolutely no experience is necessary.

Learn to sew – no experience needed!

Even if you’ve never used a sewing machine in your life, our cleverly structured lessons, will soon have you sewing like a professional.

Our beginners sewing course takes you from beginner to expert.

You learn on your own sewing machine so that you become confident on your machine when sewing at home.

We don’t just teach you how to read and follow a pattern. In fact, we don’t even ask you to bring along a pattern and fabric to your first class. You need to understand how patterns work and how fabrics move before you can make that choice.

Once you’re confident with the basics, we start teaching you all the insider secrets that dressmakers use to produce perfectly tailored garments.

The class was great!. I love the new techniques to make things easier and precise, the zipper and the gathering. I love your patience, organization and attention for each student in the class.
