Sewing Classes & Workshops
I have been sewing most of my life and love to share my passion with others. In 2015 my husband and I embarked upon a new venture and purchased The Old Laravale School in the picturesque Scenic Rim. The former State Primary School is nestled on the hill on Christmas Creek Rd just 10 minutes from the centre of Beaudesert, on the road to Rathdowney.
Classes & Workshops are held in the newly renovated, air conditioned Audrey Room of the School.
The Audrey Room is a spacious dedicated sewing studio set up in the former school library. The new room is equipped with irons, ironing boards, press, overlocker, emergency sewing supplies for use during class, and a small range of sewing supplies available for purchase.
Casual classes held regularly, allow students to bring their own projects and work on them in a friendly learning atmosphere. I help with the tricky bits and you have access to classroom supplies and equipment.
All day Sit & Sews are held quarterly. These days are the perfect opportunity to sew (or craft) uninterrupted from 9am till 6pm. There is no tuition, however I can point you in the right direction if you get stuck.
For dates and details go to my facebook page or my blog.
Workshops are held periodically. These may include Learn To Sew course, Overlocking workshops, Beginner's Quilts, Bags Wallets & Purses, T-shirts, Knickers, techniques such as applique or chenille, zippers, crochet, soap and candle making, and I am always open to suggestions.
We are currently working on farmhouse accommodation for Retreats - sewing, scrapbooking, photography, training sessions, or whatever takes your fancy.
You can book your own days or weekend or join one of ours.
Our Retreats will cater for small groups and includes the use of the Errisvale Room in the old school building. Subject to availability, the Audrey Room may also be suitable.
