Learn to Sew Clothes (that fit) Class - June 2024
Our April Class is Full. 8 spots left in our June class.
This class is ideal for absolute beginners who have never ventured into clothing creation before. We also welcome complete beginner sewists.
Our experienced tutors, Briony Alderslade, Emma Thomas, and Faith Ner, will guide you through every aspect of basic garment making. From measuring to determine your size, reading and tracing a pattern, adjusting it to suit your body, cutting fabric pieces, accurate pinning and sewing, to ironing and neatly finishing seams.
Participants will need to purchase either a Matchy Matchy Sewing Club PDF Pattern for $22 or choose one pattern from Thread Theory for $25 each.
Class Cost: $200.00
When: Saturdays - June 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 2PM-5PM
At Frangipani Fabrics, we foster an inclusive classroom and take pride in our welcoming community. We practice accessible and adaptive teaching, utilizing our collective experience and skills to assist you in creating comfortable clothing tailored to your needs and body. We believe that the ability to make your own clothing should be available to everyone, and there is empowerment in learning this skill.
If you have any queries about adapting these designs to suit your body, feel free to give us a call or drop in for a chat, and we can collaborate on finding solutions.

Pattern sizes XXS-6XL (Bust 31” - 64” / 79cm - 162cm)

Please let us know in the "comments" section of the shopping cart which option you would like to make.
Please Note: The class cost does not include fabric as individual requirements will vary. We will have a great selection of appropriate fabrics in store that you can buy before the class or on the day. (We recommend before so that fabric can be washed to account for a small amount of shrinkage).
Accessibility: Despite our goal to have an accessible sewing classroom, in our current location the classroom is unfortunately up a flight of stairs. There is a small bathroom downstairs, not wheelchair accessible. If you have any queries about the accessibility of our classroom, please give us a call.
We do have a mobile classroom which we take to different venues that are wheelchair accessible, so please do keep an eye out for those classes if you are unable to visit our North Hobart store.
