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.
