About Intermediate Face-To-Face Sewing Classes
Intermediate sewing classes are quite personalised, designed to teach new skills or enhance the current skills of those who may already know how to sew.
Beginners who move up to this class will consolidate and build upon the skills already learned and acquire new ones by choosing their own project and sewing it under my supervision.
You must have prior sewing knowledge to join this level.
Skills required include: knowledge of darts, gathering, zippers, and a basic understanding of how to read a pattern. Don’t worry if your skills in these areas are not perfect; that’s what I’m here for!
Christeen I would like to thank you for opening up a whole new interest for me. After years of negative thoughts about sewing, I have found that I absolutely love it. I now have a keen interest in fashion, materials and colour.
It is a good feeling when someone makes a positive comment and I can proudly say "I made it".
It is great for the mind and if I can't work it out you are there to guide me. My only regret is that I didn't find this passion years ago.

I love coming to Saturday sewing classes that Christeen hosts. I think she is a wonderful teacher. The class itself is the highlight of my week and Christeen creates such a warm and comforting environment for everyone.
Before I met Christeen I hadn’t even touched a machine. Since coming to her classes I have finished my beginners course and I have so far made a cute top, dress for a baby girl and on my way to making a saree crop top/blouse.
Christeen is super professional, friendly and has so much experience and knowledge.
Thank you so much for all that you have taught me so far Christeen! I highly recommend Christeen and all her classes to anyone
Meet Christeen Jacobs
This Beginners 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 loves watching their faces light up as they realise what they can achieve after their first lesson.
I enjoy attending the sewing classes at Sew n Sew whether it’s a 2 hour class or an all day session. Learning how to make a sewing pattern is one of the best things that I’ve ever decided to do. I no longer have to buy expensive patterns and try to make them fit. Christeen’s knowledge of sewing, design, pattern making and suggestions is invaluable. I would recommend Sew n Sew to anyone who wishes to learn to sew.
After the intermediate sewing class, where can I progress?
Your next step up from the Intermediate course is to continue with the Intermediate course for either 6 or 12 weeks where there will be endless skills for you to learn. You will continue to make items of your choice, learning new sewing skills with each new project.
