Express sewing classes

Everyone has the little odd sewing jobs that they either outsource or the garment gets thrown out because it seems easier to replace it rather than fix it. But with the express sewing classes for beginners, you can learn the necessary skills to fix your garments yourself!

There are three express classes available:

  • Zipper insertion
  • Garment hemming
  • Button/buttonholes

All materials are provided, unless you have something you already have something that needs  fixing.

Each class will run for only 1 hour, so just book into whatever class you need to up-skill yourself.

By learning these small skills, you will not only save money, but also prolong the life of your garments and reduce the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfill.

COST: $40 per person

Please note: A sewing machine is essential for this class, please advise upon booking if you don’t have one.
