Adult Sewing

Upcoming Classes For Adults - Registration Open!

Spring 2023 (thru' June)

sewing sessions are 4 weeks long and each class is 90 minutes. These classes have been designed for absolute beginners and adults who haven't sewn for a long time who would like to refresh their skills. Our projects are fun and simple and our dedicated instructors will guide you every step of the way!


We have a series of projects for you to work through in this order:


  • Session 1 "Sew Happy Signature Bag" (start off with the Sew Happy Introductory Felt Pouch including sewing on a button, then make a lined denim tote bag with a pocket)


  • Session 2 "Zip It, Mend It" (make a lined, zippered pouch and learn how to hem, using the European, regular and blind hem methods.)


  • Session 3 "Pillow 2 Ways" (make a pillow with an invisible zipper and a pillow with an envelope closure)


  • Session 4 "EZ Quilting" (make a Sashiko quilt block using a hand sewing technique and a "Quilt-As-You-Go" quilt block on the sewing machine)

For students who have completed at least one of the above sewing sessions, please  join our Adult Makerspace classes on Wednesdays 10.30am - 12pm, starting April 12th.

Please note that we do not make fitted items of clothing and we do not do alterations or tailoring at these classes. If requested by enough students we will consider offering a class that offers these projects and skills. Alternatively you can talk to us about private lessons to make clothing.

Summer School is open Mondays and Wednesdays in July from 6pm - 8.30pm and our Adult Sewing Camps are July 10th - 14th, July 17th - 21st and July 24th - 28th 1pm - 4pm. If you are not already a Sew Happy student please take a private class before camp to complete our Introductory Felt Pouch class. Spots are limited so please register soon.

We look forward to seeing you at Sew Happy Studios!
