Class Recommendations

I have no experience! Which class would you recommend?

No prior experience? Not to worry! If this is your first time with us, we have 2 options we highly recommend

  1. Starter Bundle
    It is a 2 session (2 hour/ session) class that covers basic sewing and sewing operation skills. This course is perfect for first-timers to have a feel of our environment as well as experience how our classes are conducted. At the end of the lesson, you will be bringing home a pouch made from scratch by you!
  2. WSQ Fashion & Fabrics (Basic Top & Skirt) or WSQ Fashion & Fabrics (Basic Dress with Lining) class
    These foundation courses cover the process of making a garment from the start to the end, where you will pick up the skills of drafting, cutting, and sewing your very own garments in your own sizes. Also, the WSQ courses are Skillsfuture Credit claimable.
Should I do drafting or sewing?

We offer a wide range of courses for you to choose from and it is truly up to your preference.

Our Sewing Only (Fashion/ Accessories) courses are for those who want to practice and improve their sewing. Choose from our wide selection of designs and learn various techniques like installing a concealed zipper, bias tape, pockets, etc, and sew up a stylish new outfit to wear every day. Highly recommended for beginners!

If you are interested in learning to relay your measurements onto patterns, our Drafting & Sewing classes or WSQ-certified classes would suit those who are ready to dive right in! From learning how to make your own Master Block to learning how to customise your garment to suit your style & preference, we welcome all students to embark on this journey to fashion freedom!

Can I create my own designs?

Yes, we laud individual creativity & spontaneity! Our WSQ-certified classes allow for some design variations; and if you don’t find a design that you fancy, just book a private workshop with us! We can help you realise and complete your fashion projects/ portfolio or design ideas. This process starts with a free consultation at our studio about your idea – this helps us both to set realistic targets for the project and coordinate our schedules. Small group lessons are also available!
