We run classes every day (EXCEPT TUESDAY – OUR “DAY OFF”) – yes, including Saturday and Sunday.
Buying your machine through our store entitles you to discounted classes, (because we support our customers in their purchases).
For machines purchased elsewhere the cost will be $50 per hour.
We begin with a Get to Know Your Machine or Get to Know Your Overlocker class.
Once familiar with the machine, you can move on to any of our other classes or workshops that interest you. These include advanced sewing machine and overlocker techniques, patchwork and quilting, basic dressmaking, how to install zippers, applique, free-motion work, machine embroidery, sashiko using the beautiful Babylock Sashiko machine, cushions, runners, bags, etc. We can even advise and help you to finish that UFO lurking in the cupboard!
We are currently taking expressions of interest for In the Hoop techniques (something different that cleverly combines machine embroidery and quilting) classes.
Children’s Classes are scheduled during School Holidays. These are a Make and Take class – suitable for girl or boy – their machine or ours. What a wonderful Show and Tell item for Back To School!
(Children’s classes are often fully-booked well before the break – it may be wise to register early for the waiting list!)
Machines we supply for children’s classes are cleverly and safely speed-controlled and used without the foot-controller – much less scary and much safer!
Bookings essential – full payment at time of booking, please.
(Just a handful of our happy customers…..) see more of us on Instagram (baysidesewing) and Facebook (bayside sewing) –
For the Babylock overlocker and/or coverstitch people we run project and technique classes as numbers and availability allow.
Club days for Janome owners – register your interest and we can slot you into the next available class relevant to your machine(s) and requirements.
Need a hand to get started with Brother Scan’n’Cut? It’s not at all scary once you know how!
Embroidery machines – we can help get you up and running.
(Morning Classes 10:00 to 12:00, Afternoon Classes 2:00 to 4:00)
Want to do a class with friends? Find a project/technique you would all like to try and we can easily create a class to suit – minimum of 2 attendees. We can even supply a class machine if you have interstate/overseas visitors.
Classes are generally booked about 2 weeks in advance, but occasionally we have vacancies, so give us a call 9584 3955 or better still, pop in for a visit.
