The Sewing Room – Surry Hills Sydney

I’m thrilled and very excited to let you know that there is now a new sanctuary here in Sydney, in our local Surry Hills for sewing enthusiasts and followers and lovers of fabric, buttons ,vintage patterns, ribbons and braids. Where you can take sewing, knitting, patternmaking, fabric dying, beading, embroidery, fashion photography and computer design classes ( and more), called The Sewing Room.

Join one of The Sewing Room’s classes guided by experienced highly qualified instructors. They specialise in one-off sessions or short courses held on weekdays, evenings and weekends. The Sewing Room has sewing classes catering to all levels from the complete novice to the expert. Class sizes are small so everyone can benefit from personal attention.

There is even a sewing class specially designed for guys who want to learn to sew on a button or to alter their jeans. There are more advanced classes for people who want to create a tailored jacket and learn how to sew difficult evening wear fabrics.

You can come to a class to develop your fashion design skills, make your own patterns with an introduction to pattern making classes or simply learn how to alter a pattern to fit you.
