Sew Anything Class Friday
Complete beginners welcome!
Come and sew those unfinished projects, or start a new project, in a friendly and relaxed environment. Sewing machines are welcome.
We are here to help you at any stage of your project, be it a bag, soft toy, clothing or a quilt, from designing, to planning and finishing! Morning tea included.
Rotary cutters, mats, rulers and irons are available for your use in the class area. Please let us know if you would like to borrow a sewing machine during class time.
Sewing sessions are held every Friday (except public holidays), from 10am-12:30pm.
Need some inspiration? Here are the projects we have available kits for (these are not limited - you can sew anything!)
