Where possible we will attempt to re-book the class. On occasion, times may be difficult to re-schedule and the student may have to wait for a suitable time.


Tea and coffee are provided.


It is advisable for full day workshops students to bring their own lunch as the nearest food available for purchase is a short drive.


Please Note: Other than general sewing and overlocking, we recommend all students have stretch sewing knowledge prior to booking a specialised workshop in bra making, corsetry, briefs making and swimwear.
