We are there to help, and answer questions but no tuition is provided. Come and join us in our inspiring and relaxing workspace, we are limited by size (max 8), so bookings are essential. Cost per person is $10.

WEEKLY CLASSES

On set Monday and Wednesday morning's throughout the year we hold in store classes with our experienced local needlework tutors.

If you have a project that you need some help on or would just like to stitch in the company of others, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you. Our tutor will be there to answer your questions, provide guidence, and encouragement when necessary! Come and join us for a morning each week to get that project underway or completed. We are limited by size (maximum 6), so bookings are essential. Tuition must be pre-paid for the full term.
