In a nutshell, sewing:

Our fully equipped studio has six Bernina 1008s. These completely manual sewing machines are real workhorses and are used globally in schools and other training facilities. We rotate through an assortment of sewing projects that includes clothing, cushions, bags, quilts and furniture. All are available as workshops or private lessons.
Come join in the fun! We cater for all skill levels.
We are continuing to develop a complete sewing system based around our core pattern ModularME #1.
The system consists of:
- Learning basic sewing skills by making a base top/dress
- Extending your skills, module by module, so you can customise your top/dress to suit your own style
Each module comes with a combination of instructions, patterns and video tutorials to help you along your sewing journey. Also, we offer online tutorial and/or sew-along sessions for the base top/dress and some of the modules.
We offer a range of workshops designed to develop your sewing skills. From complete “newbies” through to experienced sewers, we offer contemporary projects designed to develop your skills and confidence. Our experienced tutors are knowledgeable, patient and very passionate about sewing as well as about the learning process. Our group workshops are small and intimate and are designed to make learning fun and easy.
Sewing projects are taught on a rolling schedule and include:
- Learn to Sew
- Soft furnishings
- Women’s clothes
- Children’s clothes
- Bags, purses and totes
