Sewing Class for Absolute Beginners

Learn how to sew in Sydney from the very very start

2 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $80 (or 4 payments of $20 Afterpay)

Never touched a sewing machine? This Sydney sewing class is for you, baby.

We'll go from the very start---learn about the essential equipment to get sewing and beginner friendly fabrics.

During the session you will cut out you first project (a book bag) and sew it together to completion.

Class sizes are limited to ensure sufficient space and assistance is available.

Bring your own sewing machine or hire one of ours additional to your booking.

You'll also get recommendations on next steps in sewing and all your questions answered!

All events are hosted by Chaotic Socialite Chrissy Flanagan and her deputy, poodle Bobbin.

We’re really very friendly. Come stag, come with a mate, come with a whole crop of cousins, either way it’s a warm and inviting atmosphere and we mix and marinate.

Fair warning: I can’t swear there won’t be games, and there will definitely be nametags.

The break of up a decade term relationship and subsequent bouts of loneliness have led me - Sydney’s former Sausage Queen, Chrissy Flanagan - to solve others’ desire to make adult friends, as well as my own.

It’s often said Sydney is a particularly tricky place to make friends as an adult. If you miss out on doing any of the big four locally or at all - high school, uni, work, kids - it’s hard to bridge the gap, leaving many of us lonelier than we would like.

And yet, as adults we’re embarrassed or too self conscious to use modern tools such as friend networking apps to solve this problem.

Chaotic Social, is seeking to bridge that gap, in the form of classes and events, where you’re encouraged to roll solo and go home with a few new mates in your phone.
