Description

Are you new to sewing or would love to learn to sew? In this class we’ll be making a simple yet glamorous robe that you can style as day/beach wear or cosy into after a lovely warm bath or to lounge about in. You’ll learn the basics of operating a sewing machine and how to sew with accuracy to then make this fabulous new piece for your wardrobe.

This is a BYO friendly sewing machine class, so bring along your own sewing machine (and any little bits that go with it) or hire one from us available to use for the class. Forget the hassles of following a sewing tutorial on YouTube or on Pinterest alone and enjoy a fun group environment with plenty of individual attention. I’ll ensure you learn how to sew with your exact machine and help you get through any tricky bits that come up or don’t make sense so that you walk away with better sewing skills & a kimono robe you’d love to wear!

About Ann-Maree Saver

I’ve been a maker since forever, spending many childhood afternoons mesmerised over DIY books and attempting to recreate them with whatever I could get my hands on. Fast forward another 20 years or so, I had a close call with a civil engineering degree before, saying f*k it and getting formally trained with a Diploma of Applied Fashion at TAFE and a Bachelor of Industrial Design at uni. Whilst I love working in the field, I also love teaching the skills that take mere ideas into reality, it’s like making magic right in front of your eyes!
