THE WORKSHOP

We have 26 work stations available, including a sewing station and cutting table for each student. Each table is providing with a sewing kit box containing haberdashery required for classes and an iron.

We encourage students to use this  equipment and not their own personal equipment in order to avoid loss.

We do however encourage students to purchase their own pair of cutting shears (scissors) and mark them clearly with your name.

SEWING MACHINES

Sew Crazy provides sewing machines for  the use of students in the beginners course.

If the student already owns their own machine, they are encouraged to bring it to class, it makes sense for new sewers to become completely familiar and comfortable with the machine they will be working on long term.

It’s your “baby”.

For beginners who have not purchased a machine yet, please use our machines, we have Janome and Elna machines for use, please chat to the teachers about advice on what machine to purchase best suited to your needs and budget. We very much want to see our students purchase reliable machines to avoid time wastage on a machine that constantly gives trouble.

We have a tea (or coffee) time half way through our three hour classes. Tea and coffee (biscuits) provided.

Sew As you Go- This is essentially supervised sewing classes where the student brings their current project, machine, pattern, material etc and our teachers guide them through the steps and process of constructing their project.

PAYMENT

All courses are booked and paid upfront before or on the day of the students first lesson. Cash, prior eft or credit card payment is acceptable.
