Sewing Courses in Sydney

Home > Sydney > Courses
Published August 24th 2010
Some of my strongest recollections of my grandmother involve a small, portable sewing kit. It was in a velvet case, included an adorable little thimble and enough space for several reels of twine. Whenever a button escaped a skirt, of the hem of a dress started drooping, my grandmother would always be on hand with her sewing kit to mend the wayward threads.

If, like me, you have always associated the art of sewing with a previous generation, you may be surprised to learn that there are various sewing courses around Sydney.

St George and Sutherland Community College is based in various locations around Sydney. These courses cost approximately $135 and run for one to eight sessions.

At Sydney Community College, there are a variety of courses relating to fashion and textiles, ranging from dressmaking to fabric printing. Apart from the more specialised courses, including fashion corset making in August and September, there are also more practical courses instructing students in ways of turning their sewing skills into profit. The college is based in Lilyfield, and courses usually cost over 100 dollars.

Having completed the task of learning how to sew, it is also necessary to find the proper supplies. There are numerous options for suppliers, such as Sewing and Craft Supplies, the Sydney Sewing Centre, and Spotlight.
