One on One Classes at Nedlands and Joondalup stores – Sewing Basics

We provide individual lessons on your machine so that you can learn the basics of dressmaking with either woven (stable) or knit (stretch) fabrics. Lessons are 1 hour at a time booked to suit you – $30 for 1 hour.

Sewing with Woven (Stable) Fabrics Basics

We will teach you how to sew woven (not stretch) fabric using one of the above patterns.
If you choose to make a pair of pyjamas you can choose a pattern for either the children or adults. This is an excellent way to learn how to sew a collar onto a shirt and do the front facing with buttons and buttonholes.
Or you may like to sew a skirt skirt using New Look 6843. The skirt pattern will cover darts, a zip and waistband.
You will be shown how to read a pattern, cut out the fabric, and make the garment. You will gain confidence in sewing with woven fabric and learn many tips as you go.
We have the patterns in both Nedlands and Joondalup stores, but you will need to bring your own fabric. You also need to bring your own machine.
