Dates for beginners Sew Inn classes @ Tessuti Surry Hills, Sydney



Anyone interested in learning to sew? Our wonderful Sew Tessuti contributor Georgia, is very keen to start teaching what she knows at Tessuti's Sew Inn classes.

First up Georgia will start teaching the basics, from threading a machine, various stitches, seams and hems, to reading a commercial pattern and working out what size to cut and learning to lay them out onto fabric, ready for cutting. Soon enough Georgia will have you sewing up creations like this , this and eventually this and this!

Here are dates for Georgia's classes at Tessuti Surry Hills, Sydney - 110 Commonwealth Street - PH: 02 9211 5536.

Short course beginners classes Saturdays:
May 1st - learning the basics and how to chose a suitable pattern for a novice sewer.
May 15th - how to read a pattern, preparing for cutting and start sewing a top (top pattern will be provided).
May 29th - learning the basics and how to chose a suitable pattern for a novice sewer.
June 12th - how to read a pattern and preparing for cutting and start sewing a top (top pattern will be provided).

These beginner classes will cost $75 for three hours (11am - 2pm) and groups will be limited to a maximum of 5 students, you can book one, two or all four classes. Sewing machines will be supplied, but you bring your own scissors, pins, thread, and tape measure. Or you can also purchase these from the store on the day.

  3. Hi Anonoymous,

    For a beginners class it would be a simple top similar to McCalls 5050 in a short or 3/4 sleeve version. If anyone wanted to try another simple top pattern in the class...I'm sure Georgia would be happy to teach how to make it provided the pattern isn't too complicated. If anyone has any pattern suggestions please feel free to email me and I can forward them to Georgia.
