We love love love teaching people all about sewing and quilting and offer a range of classes including multi level quilting classes as well as sewing and dressmaking for all skill levels.
As we engage teachers for some classes and space is limited, bookings are essential and pre-payment is required to secure your place, classes can be booked and paid for up to 72 hours prior. Class fees are for tuition only, you will be given a list of materials required for the class unless otherwise stated.
Our class sizes are kept small to optimize your time with our tutors, one on one coaching is also available, contact us for more information.
You will need to bring your own sewing machine and basic sewing supplies (thread, scissors, pins, unpicker). For quilting classes you will need a rotary cutter.
We sell everything you need for your sewing or quilting classes with starter packs available. Please ask us for details if you are unsure what you need.
FAQ About Classes
Our classes are designed to suit everyone – from beginners to advanced!
How much does it cost?
The class fees are priced per session and are for tuition, they do not include the materials needed unless it is stated.
How many classes do I need to attend?
Our classes are designed as standalone classes for flexibility – they are not a set course – therefore you can come to as many or as few as you want, even just a one off class. You may not finish your project in class and feel that you need to come back to another class to complete it, or you may feel confident enough to finish by yourself.
What if I don’t have a sewing machine?
Sewing machines are available for hire during classes – $5 for 2 hours.
