Thanks for a very thorough lesson Vanessa. I’ve had lots of experience patchworking but zero exposure to garment patterns. I feel confident to read the back of a pattern packet and to cut all the relevant pieces for my project. I’m excited for the next steps to join all the pieces to finalise my top! Vanessa is very patient, very clear with instructions, studio is spotless and I’ll be back for another lesson. Many thanks.

Make It Nifty holds sewing and dressmaking classes in Bracken Ridge 30 minutes North of Brisbane CBD. 

At Make It Nifty students are taught sewing techniques and knowledge while having a good time.

Students are encouraged to “give it a go”; progress is better than perfection. Students should leave class feeling happy that they have tried something new; proud that they made something with their own two hands and skill, and confident they could do it again.

Make It Nifty is a (very) small private business that was started in 2015 on Vanessa’s dining table.

Make It Nifty is now located in a studio space on the ground floor of Vanessa’s home in Bracken Ridge.
