This is our Mini Hexagon Bag. We will have a class for this on 25th July and again on 1st of August.

We have some fantastic workshops planned, some skills classes, a weekend away, and of course our regular sewing classes during the week. Below is what we have planned. 

If you have never tried paper piecing or are already a skilled hand stitcher, our Mini Hexagon Bag is a great project to learn. Lorraine will be teaching this on Wednesday 25th of July, with a follow up class to complete the bag on Wednesday 1st of August.

Judy Newman is teaching her beautiful patterns on Saturday 4th, and Sunday 5th of August. You can see Judy's work on Instagram @judynewman.

Lisa Mattock is teaching two separate workshops on Sunday 2nd and Monday 3rd of September. For inspiration, you can see Lisa's work on Instagram @foragebylisamattock.

We are holding an introduction to needle turn appliqué on Monday 10th of September, where you will have access to our fabulous cuttings basket and be taught a skill that will open you up to all of the wonderful projects.

Old School Sewing at Port Clinton will be held again on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of September. This is where we bring our latest hand sewing projects to our favourite Yorke Peninsula town for a weekend of serenity.

Lorena Uriarte is teaching her Opal Essence Quilt on Sunday 23rd of September. You can see Lorena's work on Instagram @lorena_in_sydney.

We are teaching another skills class on Monday 24th September, a Lined Zippered Bag. The cost of this class includes a kit to make one bag, but once you know how, you'll make many more.

Marg Sampson George is teaching on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of September. This actually falls on the long weekend and so if you'd like to do three days of sewing, then here's your chance. Alternatively, if you'd like to do the Monday 1st October only, then this is perfect for you too. You can see her work on Instagram @MSG47.


If you want to get things finished, or if you need some help on something you've started sewing but aren't sure how to continue, then maybe our daily classes would suit you.

Monday evening class is taught by Helen and Kaye, 6pm-9pm, cost $25. This is where you can work on your own projects whether it be machine or hand piecing. This is a great class with expert help.

Tuesday class is taught by Lorraine, 10am-1pm, cost $25. Again, this is hand or machine sewing class where you work on your own project, getting expert help where needed.

Wednesday is a Sit and Sew class from 10am-2pm at a cost of $15. There is not a teaching in this class, but there is a lovely space for you to enjoy your sewing with other people who also enjoy their sewing. The staff in the shop are always happy to help with any guidance required of course.

Thursday class is taught by Helen, 10am-1pm, cost $25. You work on your own projects in this class and gain help where required whether it be hand or machine piecing. If you have a Thursday free, then this is the class for you.

Friday hand stitching class, 10am-1pm, cost $10. If you enjoy hand piecing, appliqué, english paper piecing, hand quilting, and a great chat, then this is your class. 

All of our classes are held in our classroom which is a couple of doors down from our shop here at 138 Port Road, Hindmarsh.
