A note on booking classes: 

Our classes often fill up months in advance and have a long waiting list. We ask that you are considerate of others and not book in for a class where your availability is likely to change close to the date. 

We are not able to refund any class booking fees or swap dates around once booked. If you have extenuating circumstances that affect your availability for the class, we require 7 days notice via email, and your class fee will be transferred to a gift voucher of the same value. Any class cancellations within 7 days of the class date will not be eligible for a voucher and the amount will be forfeited.


Beginners Learn To Sew Class


This class is designed for the complete beginner who has never sewn with a machine before, or who has maybe done a small amount of machine sewing in the past or when they were at school.

In this class, Beth will guide you through essential machine knowledge, which needles and machine feet to use for different uses and some common troubleshooting steps. You will then move into sewing skills, selecting stitches, sewing seams, hems, unpicking, inserting zippers and more.

From there, you will put your new skills to work in a project and leave the class with a finished product to take home!

Introduction To Stretch Sewing Class

We hear so often that many of our customers are ‘afraid’ of sewing with stretch fabrics. Once you know the proper techniques, tips and tricks, however, you will be on your way and filling up your wardrobe with t-shirts and leggings and knit dresses - the possibilities are endless! 

This class is designed for people who have some experience with their sewing machine but want to learn how to sew confidently with stretch fabrics. If you haven’t sewn before or are not a confident sewer yet, we recommend completing our Beginners Sewing Class first before moving onto the Introduction to Stretch Sewing class.

In this class, Beth will guide you through the essentials of stretch sewing - which needles to use for which fabrics, how to adjust your sewing based on the amount of stretch in the fabric, finishing on stretch fabrics (hems, zig zag vs twin needle stitching, neck and sleeve cuffs) and working with different elastics.

From there, you will put your new skills to work in a project and leave the class with a brand new ‘me made’ jersey knit t-shirt, along with the t-shirt pattern to continue sewing your own wardrobe!

Patchwork & Quilting Class

Have you seen the beautiful quilts hanging on the walls in our shop and thought “I’d love to make that!” ? Are you wanting to make some lovely quilts for your beds and couches, friends and family but don’t know where to start?

This class is designed for participants who can sew with their sewing machine already and want to learn the art of patchwork quilting using our pre-cut jelly roll & layer cake fabrics.

Included with your class fee is the jelly roll or layer cake pack of fabrics for your quilt top.

Swimwear Sewing Class

Have some experience with stretch fabrics, but haven't yet taken the plunge into sewing swimwear? Bring your own swimwear pattern (see recommended patterns in the class description) and sew along with the support & guidance of our sewing teacher Beth.

This class is designed for people who have experience sewing stretch fabrics. If you're new to sewing with stretchy spandex & lycra fabrics, we recommend the Introduction to Stretch Sewing class first before joining this class.


Casual Sewing Night

Bring your own project and enjoy sewing with a group of like minded individuals in the surroundings of a magical fabric shop. Work at your own pace, free from the distractions of being at home and have an expert on hand for any questions or advice with your sewing.
