Description

We spend lots of time teaching them to thread their own machines and start to troubleshoot stitching problems.  Everyone starts out on a template and then makes a handy zippered pencil case.

The course is designed for children aged nine years and up. If your child under nine is super keen to be involved, a parent/guardian must accompany and assist them through the workshop. 

This class is only offered during the School holidays. Our school holiday program is hosted by our super talented, super nice and super fun instructors.

I enjoyed the class because I got to learn how to sew and also got to make my very first bag. I've asked my mum if I can get more lessons and she said yes. I would like to learn how to make toys. I had alot of fun. Thank you, Zoe 😊

I learned how to sew a zip on a machine and some of the highlights were that we got to learn how to use fusable interfacing. I can not wait to do it again

My 9 years old daughter had lots of fun in this class, and she came home with wealth of excitement about doing her own sewing project. Kind teachers, great environment, highly recommended.
