Class Details:

  • Who: Children aged 8-16
  • What: Kids Sewing Class - ideal for beginners and experienced crafters
  • Cost: $60 per lesson (Please note: class costs DO NOT include fabric or kits, prices for these vary and are listed below)
  • Enrolment: Flexible - sign up for as many classes as you'd like. We recommend at least two classes to complete a project.
  • Projects: All projects are available every day of the program. Beginners start with the Nine-patch Cushion Cover before moving on to other projects
  • Tutors: Our exceptionally skilled and approachable tutors specialise in tailoring their teaching to meet each child's unique level, fostering both creativity and skill. They prioritise understanding individual learning styles and needs, ensuring a personalised educational experience that empowers young learners to thrive.
  • Additional Info: Sewing supplies and irons provided during class. Sewing machine hire available for $5. Children will choose from curated kits; fabric and supplies must be purchased from us.
  • Sewing Machines: Elevate your child's sewing experience by using a quality sewing machine equipped with speed control, needle-down capability, and full stitch length and width adjustment. All machines in our classroom are ideal for learning. If your home sewing machine lacks these features, consider renting one of ours for just $5.00 per lesson. Unsure if your machine is suitable? Reach out to us for guidance. 

    Sewing machines without these features are usually not strong enough to sew thicker projects like bags and quilts, tend to jam and come unthreaded constantly through the lesson, and slow your child's progress.
