BEGINNER-PLUS COURSES

Sew Creative Beginner Plus courses continue in our relaxed style with the focus on fun and interactive learning, while adding to your basic sewing skills.  These courses are ideal for relative beginners AND those who wish to add to their knowledge of sewing fundamentals.  Our class sizes are kept small to ensure a hands-on learning experience where individual attention is given to all. 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.

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, please ensure you book one on your enrolment form.  To make your booking, complete the enrolment form by clicking the bookings or select the bookings page in our main menu.   We’ll confirm your booking via email and include payment details. Your payment secures your booking.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
