Class Info

SEW MUCH FUN, in Blockhouse Bay, teaches sewing to Kids, Teens and Adults. Classes are for kids 7 years and over, teens and adults. Students learn the basics of sewing in a simple, creative and fun way.


While enjoying learning to sew, children and youth develop important life and career skills such as problem-solving, patience and perseverance. Adults get a chance to get away from their usual routine and have fun developing a useful skill. Every student gets an immense sense of pride and accomplishment when he or she completes a project.

Students follow a structured system consisting of a workbook with a set of 8-9 clothing patterns which they complete during the course of around 8 to 9 months. The cost of the workbook and patterns is $50. All students are to bring their own material, thread, and trimmings which should cost around $5 to $15 per item.


Sewing machines and tools are provided. Students can continue for as long as they want to. However, I can assure you that you will want to keep on sewing as you progress from one skill level to the next.


Kids 7 to 17 years pay $20 for a one-hour or $30 for a two-hour class. The fees are due on or before the first class of each month.


Small classes of 2-4 students per class ensure individual attention. Adults 18 and over pay $25 for a one-hour class or $40 for a two-hour class.

Students who know the basics of sewing can start on ‘Easy’ Commercial Patterns or Pattern Drafting for beginners. One-on-One Pattern drafting classes cost $65 per class of two hours.
