On a Sunday afternoon, once a month, I'll be running sewing classes in the CWA Rooms, in Coolamon.  It'll be a four-hour session, starting at 10.00am and finishing by 2.00pm.  Students are welcome to work on their own personal projects, under my expert guidance.  Absolute beginners are also welcome to begin their sewing journey in this creative, friendly group.

During each session, I will demonstrate at least one vital dressmaking technique.  These techniques will include inserting zips, a variety of hemming techniques, all seam types and their specific uses, sleeve insertion, sewing collars, attaching waistbands and so many more.

Bring your sewing machine and all your sewing equipment, patterns, fabric, sewn samples, and creative ideas. These groups will be kept small (6) to make sure everyone gets specialist the attention they desire.

Absolutely love Studio Faro sewing classes. In my recent class Anita helped with the fitting of a denim skirt pattern I was trialling. And now I have the perfect denim skirt pattern. Finally I can wear a denim skirt that fits me exactly!
