Frequently Asked Questions:


How much do the classes cost?

Class costs vary depending on your needs. A 6 week set of 2 hour classes, in your own home, costs $720 for personalised “one on one” classes.  However, if  you'd like to share your class with a friend or family member the cost would be $480 each.  Specialised, personal fit and patterns making classes can be tailored to suit your needs and cost from $70 per hour with a 2 hour minimum.

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

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 your classes better value for money!

When are the classes held?

Classes can be scheduled at times to suit you, in your own home.  Janet is available 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 benefited 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.
