Affordable Private Sewing Lessons

If you cannot make it to one of our small group classes, or you have a special project in mind that you want to make, then come on over for a private sewing class. Depending on your location and our teachers availability, we may even be able to come to your home for a lesson.

Learn to sew or improve your sewing skills with more advanced techniques. Maybe you would like to learn basic pattern making skills and block construction?

Whether you want to learn how to hem your pants, alter your clothes, make a basic skirt or your wedding dress, you will love your personalized private sewing tuition.

Our hourly rates are: $65 per hour

Rate is for one-to-one tuition; for each additional person in the lesson add $20/hour

Groups of 6 or more qualify for group rates.

The lesson fee includes the use of one of our sewing machines (at our studio) if you cannot bring your own.

Cancelation & Refund Policy

Cancellation policy

To ensure that every student receives plenty of attention and opportunities to ask questions during the class, we make it a priority to keep our class sizes small. Classes also require a minimum number of students to run.

For that reason, your enrollment in the class is final and cancellations will forfeit the full fee However, you can also transfer your place at that class to a friend or family member at no extra cost, just let us know.

So please double check your availability before making a booking as there will be no exceptions. If you do know in advance that you may be unavailable for a specific day of the class, please contact us prior to discuss. We may be able to accommodate you in an alternate class to make up for the missed class (this option is only available if confirmed at the time of booking.)

Missed Classes

We run small group classes, most of them sized between four to six students only. This means that our classes are usually fully booked. With prior arrangement (upon booking a class), we may be able to offer a make-up class at the teacher's discretion, given there is a space available in a parallel class.

However, we regret we do not offer make-up classes for missed classes in general, due to the small class size mentioned. If we did, we would have to change our business model to larger size groups, or significantly increase our prices to accommodate the extra students.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us to discuss.

11 July 2016 • Private Sewing Lessons

Had a wonderful time learning to set up a sewing machine for the first time and trying my hand at creating something. It was a confidence boost to get me on track and I had a great time with lots of laughs. Thank you, Natascha!
