With Catherine Carter

Run in conjunction with school holidays, this 2 class course over 2 days is the perfect introduction to the sewing machine for a young and budding sewer! These classes often sell out, so book your spot soon!

This workshop is now fully booked, but you can contact us to be put on the wait list in case any spots become available.

They will learn all the basics and get lots of sewing practice to build their confidence. This course covers learning about all the parts and features of a sewing machine, how to set up the machine, using different stitches and how to solve common sewing machine problems. Class sizes are kept small, for the best learning experience and a relaxed atmosphere – no more than 5 students in class!

They will start by stitching up some small projects like a pin cushion and drawstring bag. Sewing techniques that will be covered include hemming, finishing raw edges and cutting fabric, to create the final sewing project – a simple tote bag!

This course is taught on Janome sewing machine model MW3018 (mechanical) or you are welcome to bring your own sewing machine.

Janome My Excel 18W Mechanical Sewing Machine

“My daughter (10yo) recently attended two day sewing workshop at Sew Make Create. She had great experience. We were able to supply our own sewing machine so she gets comfortable using that at home and Catherine had been a great guide. She wants to join another day course next school holidays. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone learning sewing.”

“The girls loved the class and will be going again next school holidays. They made lots of fun items that they can also use and felt very proud of themselves. When I asked them what they liked most, they said ‘ALL OF IT!’ and that ‘IT WAS FUN’. I think the fact that the teaching process moves quickly so that they are effectively making beautiful things straight away was a real bonus for them. Would highly recommend.”

Please get in touch if you need to drop your child off prior to 9:30am, or pick them up later than 3:00pm. We can try to offer extended care, but an additional fee will apply.
