About Christeen Jacobs
Sew n Sew Sewing School is run by Christeen Jacobs, an industry expert with over 40 years of experience in the bridal and evening wear field.
Christeen grew up watching her mother, who was a gifted seamstress, to sew and bead beautiful gowns. “Sewing is an art”, she would tell her, “every seam must be perfect. The inside of the garment should look as good as the outside”.
Christeen loved the way her mother could turn a simple picture into a work of art. She followed in her mother’s footsteps, and went on to run her own made-to-measure Bridal and Evening wear business in Sydney for many years.
She even won Gown of the Year three years running for her handmade creations.
But her real passion lies in teaching others how to create and sew their own garments, as well as giving them the freedom to wear what they want. She loves watching their faces light up as they realise what they can achieve after their first lesson.

Why Christeen Jacobs created Sew n Sew Sewing School
She began noticing the majority of sewing schools in Australia assume a level of knowledge that a student just doesn’t have. Sewing courses don’t focus on those who know absolutely nothing about sewing. There are so many people out there who have fabulous ideas and a desire to create unique clothing, but don’t know what to do beyond turning a sewing machine on. Does this sound like you?
Christeen created Sew n Sew Sewing School to teach you how to operate a sewing machine, to understand fabric, patterns, darts, zippers, and gathering, as well as how to master the basic sewing skills.
Sew n Sew Sewing School is unique
This structured and detailed method has been chosen so that each student progressively develops and enhances their knowledge and ability.
Over the years she has taught many students the art of sewing / designing and making their own creations. With the know-how and inspiration they’ve received, they now have enough confidence in their own skills to sew fabulous creations for themselves or their loved ones.
What Our Students Are Saying
Sewing was something that I had always wanted to learn but could not get to a class, so the online course suited me best. My husband gave me a sewing machine for my birthday a few years ago but sadly it ended up in a cupboard.
I was reluctant at first wondering if I would be able to learn sewing as an online course but once I got started I was amazed at how easy it was. The videos and instructions are so very clear and easy to understand. Having everything provided made it even better as I would not know where to start if I had purchased everything myself.
Thank you again Christeen Jacobs, I am now very confident using my sewing machine. It is wonderful being able to understand how to read a pattern.
I can venture into a fabric shop, buy the fabric and sew a garment using all the skills I have learned in the course. I highly recommend the Online Sewing Course for beginners.”
