Have you always wanted to learn how to create your own clothing?

Join one of The Sewing Rooms classes guided by experienced highly qualified instructors. We specialise in one-off sessions or short courses, on weekdays, evenings and weekends. Learn to make a summer dress, re-fashion something you own, learn the skills to put finishing touches on your designs or start from scratch with how to read a pattern.

The bright and busy Sewing Room is a place really worth visiting. Part sewing school, part design room, part meeting place, a flurry of creativity, and the Sewing room offers domestic and industrial sewing machines, industrial overlockers, a huge cutting table, pressing equipment and dressmaker’s mannequins. Equipment can be hired by the hour.

The Sewing Room offers classes from beginner’s right through to project based courses from those who already know how to work a sewing machine. There will even be a course specially designed for guys who want to learn to sew a button on and to alter the length of their jeans.

The Sewing room aims to become a creative hub for dressmaking enthusiasts and emerging designers, providing a supportive atmosphere for everyone in or wishing to join the fashion community.

Sewing Classes will cater to all levels from the complete novice, to the relative expert. Sewing Skills I introduces beginners to the sewing machine, while Sewing Skills II covers zippers, castings and buttonholes. Class sizes are small so that everyone can benefit from personal attention.

You can come to a class to develop your design skills, make your own patterns with our introduction to pattern making classes or simply learn how to change a pattern to fit you properly. There are more advanced classes in creating a tailored jacket and sewing those difficult evening wear fabrics.

You will be able to realise your design dreams and acquire practical patternmaking and sewing techniques to make life easier.

The Sewing Room is opening on the 11th January 2009.
