Here I am wearing my blue 1969 Burda Dress, standing on 600 year old lava from the volcano in the background - Rangitoto Island! We walked the coast from Takapuna to Milford and back, one of my favourite walks in Auckland - and not just because of the cherry yoghurt ice creams we always buy from the cafe at the top end of the beach! The walk includes lots of rocky promontories like this interspersed with beaches, both big and small:
- Sewing Machine Basics - for total beginners, to learn how to use your machine (or the machines provided)
- Level 1 Sewing - for beginners to fashion sewing, to learn how to use a commercial sewing pattern and basic garment assembly
- Level 2 Sewing - for those who want to learn more techniques and step up to the next level
- Patternmaking From a Garment you Love - I taught this class last term and it was such a success that we are now running two classes, and there are already very limited spaces so be in quick!
You can bring your own machine or use the Bernina Activas provided, plus you can sign up with friends for an additional discount - maybe you can motivate your friends-come-future-sewing-buddies to finally learn how to sew! Just follow the links for all the details and dates.
Have you taken sewing classes before, and do you have any hints to share? I'm open to tips and suggestions whether you were a student or a teacher. It's exciting to do more teaching, and introduce more people to the wonderful world of sewing - the more the better, don't you think?!
