Frequently Asked Questions:


How much do the classes cost?

Classes run for 2 hours each week for 6 weeks and cost $265 per person for a 2 person shared class or $460 for personalised “one on one” classes. 

Wouldn’t it be cheaper to attend a bigger class at a college or craft shop?

Yes it would be cheaper!  Larger class environments do provide a good service, but the great benefit of our small classes is that you receive very personal attention and you can learn in ways that work for you.  Also, you are very productive in class, as you do not need to wait for the teacher to get around the whole group to help you.

You learn more, in less time, making our classes better value for money!

When are the classes held?

Classes can be scheduled at times to suit you.  Janet is available at any time during the day and in the evenings, Monday to Friday. Please contact me to arrange a time that works for you.

Why should I take formal classes?  Can’t I teach myself?

You certainly can teach yourself but you will learn much faster and better in a class environment.  If you teach yourself, you may not know where to start, or not learn the best techniques to avoid problems with your sewing.  Why not read some of my students’ comments here to see how they benefitted from formal classes?

Why are your classes so small? 

By teaching only 1 or 2 people at a time I can ensure that the classes are tailored to your needs and learning style.  You learn exactly what you want to learn and in a way that works well for you.  The result is a better learning experience for you and your sewing skills will grow very quickly.

I don’t own a sewing machine – can you provide one?

Yes!  I have sewing machines for you to use during your classes.   I can also help you choose a machine that will suit your needs and budget.
