An assessment of what materials you will need can be undertaken upon your first lesson, after meeting the facilitator and discussing your goals and experience level. Materials can then be purchased at your leisure from any reputable craft supply store.

This is a skill development program lead by a qualified teacher where sewing machines and instructions are provided whilst you make new friends and socialise together. This program is an inclusive program ideal for people of all ages, backgrounds, genders and all-abilities.
