BEGINNER COURSES

Sew Creative courses focus on interactive learning through a relaxed and fun environment. Our class sizes are limited to ensure a hands on learning experience where individual attention is given. Classes can be arranged for private group bookings/workshops, e.g. birthday parties, team building, kitchen tea’s (lingerie course perhaps?). Enquire about group bookings here.

The focus is on fun and interactive learning, as well as meeting new people. A refreshment break to recharge during each session is included.

Please make sure your machine is oiled and in good working condition prior to starting any course. It’s a good idea to have it serviced if it hasn’t been used in a while. If you do not have access to a sewing machine, and wish to rent one of ours, you may book one on your enrolment form.  There is no charge for this for beginners courses.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

To make your booking, complete the enrolment form by clicking the bookings tab in the menu. Alternatively you can download the enrolment form here and return it via email to info@sewcreative.co.za. We’ll confirm your booking via email and include payment details. Your payment secures your booking.
