New dates – Sew Inn @ Tessuti Melbourne

Due to popular demand, we’re pleased to announce the following 2011 Melbourne Sew Inn dates:

Sat 5th Mar
Sat 9th April
Sat 30th April
Sat 28 May
Sat 18 June

These dates and classes will be facilitated by a new teacher* – Vanessa Lucas. Vanessa began making clothes as a teenager and has been constantly involved with making clothes for herself and others ever since.

While working as an art and craft teacher, requests to make clothes gradually led Vanessa away from teaching.

The study of Clothing Manufacture along with working in bridal salons, small fashion houses and theatre wardrobes has afforded a wealth of knowledge about fabrics, patternmaking and the techniques of creating high quality garments.

For many years Vanessa has created handmade clothes for individuals who want to have significant input into the style and fit of their garments. Operating a Bespoke Clothing workroom has meant working with a wide variety of fabrics, styles and body shapes. A primary motivation has been to make well fitted garments from good quality fabric which compliment the wearer and can be worn with pleasure for many years.

Vanessa’s teaching skills enable her to impart the knowledge acquired over many years of involvement in the clothing trade.

All class bookings and payments are to be made through our online shop. Cancellations require minimum two weeks notice and full
payment will be forfeited if we are unable to fill your place.

* Suzie is still running Sew Inn classes on March 26 and May 14 (both dates are booked out)
