Adults' Classes

Keeping everyone safe is still our priority. We expect students to be vaccinated and strongly encourage the wearing of masks during the class to protect those who are at risk or have vulnerable family members at home. Please contact us immediately if you have Covid symptoms or have to isolate. We will be happy to offer you a full refund or appropriate transfer (if available).  

We offer a range of ways of learning: a (free) 30 minute session when you buy a new machine or overlocker; face-to-face classes with a tutor in small groups in our classroom; and DIY kit sets. We also have free videos that will show you simple tips and tricks for both sewing and knitting projects.

Enrolment Terms and Conditions
All classes need a minimum number to go ahead. If we need to cancel, we'll contact you and offer a full refund or a transfer to another class. If you cancel, as long as you let us know at least 5 working days in advance, we'll refund you, minus a 10% admin fee.
If you pay but don't attend, or cancel fewer than 5 days in advance, we regret that a refund or transfer will only be made in exceptional circumstances, at our discretion.

Class Details
Most classes are held in our classroom behind the shop (but some are in the shop itself). The entrance is off Onepu Road, between the Westpac Bank and the funeral home. You’re welcome to park behind the shop but please avoid the two spaces against the fence labelled “KIP”.
If you’re bringing your own sewing machine or overlocker, don’t forget the foot control, power cord and feet - new needles are also recommended. Please make sure that it's in good working order - we’re happy to check it for you but you’ll need to bring it into the shop at least a week before the class. We also have a limited number of machines that you can borrow on the day but please let us know well in advance.

If it says “Add to Wish List”, this means the class is full. To go on the waiting list,  email with your name and contact phone number.
