SEW MUCH FUN in Blockhouse Bay teaches sewing to Adults, Teens and Kids 7 years and over.
Students learn the basics of sewing in a simple, creative and fun way. While enjoying learning to sew, children and youth develop important life and career skills such as problem-solving, patience and perseverance. Adults get a chance to get away from their usual routine and have fun developing a handy skill. Everyone has a great sense of pride and achievement when they complete a project.
Students follow a structured system using a workbook with a set of 8-9 clothing patterns which they complete in 8 to 9 months. The cost of the workbook and patterns is $50. All students are to bring their own material, thread, and trimmings which should cost around $5 to $15 per item. Sewing machines and tools are provided.
Students can continue for as long as they want to. However, I can assure you that you will want to keep on sewing as you learn new techniques and progress from one skill level to the next.
For children 7 to 17 years, the fee for a one-hour class is $25 and for a two-hour class is $40. For adults 18 and over, the fees are $30 for a one-hour class and $50 for a two-hour class. The fees are due to be paid at the start of each class. Monthly payment is preferred and should be made on or before the first class of each month.
Small classes of up to 4 students per class ensure individual attention. The next Sewing Workshops will be held on weekdays during the January summer holidays.
Students who know how to sew can do the Pattern Drafting course for beginners. One-on-One Pattern Drafting classes cost $75 per class of two hours which includes photocopied notes.
