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.

Without a doubt, doing the beginners course with Christeen was the best thing I have done in a long while.
The course taught me the basics of sewing, from using my machine properly, sewing terminology, basic clothing construction, reading patterns and buying fabric.
It gave me the confidence to have a go at making pyjamas, skirts, and dresses on my own and I have been really happy with the results.
