Learned how to do a magic circle amd how to join squares.
Good add on after the 1st class.
Amanda is very patient.
The space is very cosy.
Mel is super helpful and accommodating and the studio mascot, pepper, is super cute.

Our teacher Poly was really nice and she explained things to us well and she let us personalize a lot of the things we made. I went with 3 of my friends and since it was a small group with only one other person, we could communicate without being interrupted by other people. Overall, I really enjoyed the workshop and I liked our teacher.

Great way to learn. I really thought it was way too much time but honestly is not lol teacher is very easy to understand and help u anytime. Vibe is great.

Jennifer Luu Apr 2024


Highly recommend! When my partner and I began this workshop, we had zero knowledge of sewing - we left at the end of the day equipped with a whole new skillset and feeling confident about using the machine. It's a great intensive introduction to sewing if you want to get up to speed quickly - you will learn the ins and outs of a sewing machine, troubleshooting problems, hemming, cutting out patterns, straight and zigzag stitches, making buttonholes and of course a cushion cover. Our instructor, Tanja, was patient, attentive and friendly - she answered questions with enthusiasm, was great at troubleshooting mistakes and made the whole experience enjoyable. You will also get a take-home goody bag of sewing essentials, including the cushion insert.

I attended the 3 week Beginners sewing class at SewMakeCreate at Chippendale run by Melissa.

My teacher was Tanja & i cannot speak highly enough of her talent, her teaching style and her patience. There were issues with my commercially bought sewing pattern and as a beginner, i was confused, anxious & full of self-doubt. I was so ready to give up & concead defeat but Tanja & Melissa were so incredibly masterful & professional in totally redesigning the pattern to make it work. The end result was i have sewn my very first garment and i love it.

The venue at Chippendale is perfect. Its home-y and comfortable & the adjacent courtyard provides a lovely green aspect & natural light.

With every class, i learnt more & more techniques using the sewing machine & overlocker. Tanja's extensive knowledge, experience & ability to troubleshoot meant she easily identified & fixed all my mistakes, all the while teaching me tips & tricks.

I love that you were able to choose what article of clothing you wanted to make over the 3 saturdays. It meant that one student made a pair of tailored trousers, another a pleated skirt & i made a long gathered skirt.

These sewing classes are very good value for money and i highly recommend them. Thanks so much to ClassBento & SewMakeCreate

It was a fun day.

This workshop was lots of fun. Suzanne made it simple to create a beautiful wreathe. Small classes and everything supplies. Everyone went home with something special!

I cannot express in words how thankful i am to our teacher Tanya for her knowledge & patience with me at the Beginners Sewing Class. On arrival i was nervous, anxious & uncertain as to whether a 55 yr old could be taught a new skill. With Tanya's reassurance, guidance & encouragement, i learnt how to sew & for that, i am incredibly thankful. I look forward to attending more classes to broaden my knowledge & confidence.

Amanda, our teacher, had loads of experience and patience. Notes included photographs which will be helpful when I am working on a project at home. She has offered to also assist anyone via her email when required. Everyone enjoyed the day and gained lots of knowledge.

Catherine was a very attentive teacher,giving lots of good tips.
I arrived early and was welcomed with genuine friendliness. Equipment was good and venue was very accessible and comfortable. I was very impressed with my garment . I felt Catherine went beyond my expectations insetting me up to do future projects. I would highly recommend this course.

The teacher Tanja was lovely, she was super patient and helpful when me and other classmates got stuck, we had alot of laughs and I gained so much from this class!

We were provided a beginner's sewing pack, they even provided me with left handed scissors! We were also given calico to practice our stitches on, and the sewing machines were super easy to use and learn.

The venue is quite intimate but a lovely clean studio space, I am happily looking into my next class!

Debra Brown Mar 2023


The class was fantastic, friendly teachers, who helped you when you were in a pickle, learnt new ideas along the way
We will be back for another class

These ladies (+ Pepper) are a joy to work with & the teachers are very approachable & knowledgeable. I had sewed before (minimal experience -> novice) but never stretch fabrics & it turned out a success. It is also easy to get there via public transport (bus). I'd definitely do a course @ Sew Make Create again when I was in Sydney.

Matt Connors Jan 2023


Our daughter loved doing the sewing course with Catherine and learned a lot, she has recommended it to all her friends

Had a lovely time at the knit sewing class, the teacher Catherine was very friendly, easy to talk to and very informative. She kept the lesson flowing and was very helpful. A clam and practical space to work and easy to get to, highly recommend it.

Great and enjoyable class. Teacher is very experenced and patient. Highly recommended to anyone keen to learn how to crochet amigurumi

Sophia Pham Jul 2022


The girls loved the class and will be going again next school holidays. They made lots of fun items that they can also use and felt very proud of themselves. When I asked them what they liked most, they said 'ALL OF IT!' and that 'IT WAS FUN'. I think the fact that the teaching process moves quickly so that they are effectively making beautiful things straight away was a real bonus for them. Would highly recommend.

Class was a lot of fun and perfect length! Short enough to still get other things done on the weekend but long enough that I came out having made two products!

This was a great workshop for a bachelor/bachelorette evening. Melissa and Nadine were great with communication with our changing numbers and did a great job with pulling off the last minute details. Nadine was patient with explaining each step of the way and it was fun picking out each fragrance for each candle. I would definitely do another workshop at the makerspace.

It was a great class and the teacher was clear and well organised. At the end of the class it was very satisfying to bring our candle creations home!

Judith Monk Nov 2019


The teachers own stitching is first class. The kits supplied were delightful. I learned a lot and the teachers advice has improved my own stitching considerably.
