Thank you for teaching my daughter Sienna to sew. She wanted to learn for such a long time but as I knew nothing about sewing I wasn’t able to help her but thanks to you, she now makes her own clothes and she even does the odd repair for her Dad and I.
Even though she has finished the course she still refers to the course when she feels that she needs a refresher on something.
At 8 years old, the skills that my daughter has learned from Sew n Sew Sewing School are astounding. She now makes her own clothes and gifts for her friends. Christine is a brilliant teacher.

Years of Experience

Meet Christeen Jacobs
This Kids Beginner Online Sewing Course is developed by and features Christeen Jacobs, an industry expert with over 30 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 especially enjoys teaching sewing to children and passing on the skills her mother taught her.
She loves watching their faces light up as they realise what they can achieve after their first lesson.
Sienna loved learning to sew
Tina was a natural at sewing
