Adults Pattern Making and Sewing Class


Come along and not only enjoy the friendly relaxed atmosphere, but reap the benefits of first hand learning a skill that truly opens endless options for creativity with fabrics at home.


Gain the skills and knowledge required along with the confidence to produce wardrobe essentials for yourself or friends and family. You will learn how to create a number of capsule garments, from drafting and altering a personalized pattern to suit your figure, through to the construction methods required to allow each piece to come to life. 


Do you have that one ‘old favourite piece’ in your wardrobe that just works so perfectly? In the first 3 weeks of the course we will learn how to take a pattern off an existing garment and then apply the sewing skills required to recreate your item. 


Please note you’re chosen garment needs to be within class and time limitations, a basic skirt, tunic, shift dress for example. You're more than welcome to bring along more advanced garments like jackets etc for advice on how to tackle these at home.


We have done our absolute best to keep prices to a minimum and have sourced a pattern making kit (pattern making set square, Awl, Tracing Wheel) for only $55. We have made this cost optional as some participants may have these items already at home.

Our sewing classes are very social - our ladies not only sew, they share recipes, life, laughter and have a lot of fun.  Come and meet some like minded people whilst learning new skills at the same time!
