New Bralet workshop dates and other classes

By Susan | July 21, 2016

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week? We’ve been indulging a mini break with some time off to enjoy Sydney. So far we have walked through the city, Barrangaroo, Rose and Rushcutters Bay, been to the zoo, I went paddleboarding in a new spot in the harbour and just generally enjoyed having a bit of a relax.

However I interrupt all this relatxation to bring you exciting news of a new bralet workshop date and some details on other places you can find me teaching classes and workshops. IMG_8814

New Bralet workshop will be on the 18th of September. You can find out all the specifics here. I will cover the techniques you need to get started with stretch, lingerie elastic and how to get the best results. The last one was lots of fun with some really beautiful bralets being made and much new found confidence for sewing lingerie.


If you are a beginner sewer you can now come learn from me at Bobbin and Ink where I will be taking their Clothes Making for Beginners Class. The course schedule is a great way to learn your way around your machine and proceed into making garments. It should be lots of fun and I’m looking forward to working in their great space.

If you fancy a whole weekend of sewing you can participate in the Make, Sew & Gather retreat being held in Sydney on the 28th to 30th of October. I’ll be there on the Sunday to take you through an entire day of Lingerie sewing. Lots of classes covering, sewing, knitting and other skills are on offer throughout the event. More details can be found here.


As always if there is anything in particular you would like to learn you can book a private lesson with me or if you have an idea for a workshop just email me (link in sidebar) and I’ll try and make that happen.
