Are you interested in starting your sewing journey? Learn the fundamentals of using your overlocker or serger at this beginner-friendly class with Sydney Creative.

Bring along your own overlocker or serger or use one of ours if you don't have one yet.

Most people are daunted by the thought of threading an overlocker, if you're one of those people, you are not alone. We have developed this class to help you get the most out of your machine.

Class highlights

  • One on one tuition.
  • Learn about the threads and why we use two and three-quarter spools of thread on the overlocker.
  • Be guided through threading your machine until you are able to do it confidently.
  • Learn about the best tools to have close by when overlocking.
  • Learn how to stitch three different finishes on the overlocker (standard, narrow and rolled).
  • Understand how and when to adjust the tension.
  • Learn how to move the built-in cutting knife.
  • Hem edges to create a neat finish.

Throughout the session, our sewing specialist will share their knowledge, tips and tricks with you. You will be given fabric to practice on and will leave the class feeling confident in your new overlocking skills.

Sydney Creative was launched in 2019 by Textile Designer Sophie Parry.

Creativity is, and always has been, the driving force in Sophie's life. From an early age she would always swap the dolls and toys for a pen and notepad. She never minded being left to her own devices while her parents needed to go shopping. With a colouring-in book to hand Sophie happily sat quietly either scribbling away or patiently filling in each tiny hole in the fabric of her red tights – the latter much to their frustration.

Sophie's creativity and passion for art led to an interest in fabrics, sewing and textiles. It was at university where Sophie found her feet in the textiles profession, developing the skills and techniques that would guide her on her own journey in textile design. During this time, Sophie won several awards for her textile work and was chosen to exhibit her final third year project at the prestigious New Designers exhibition in London.

Upon graduating, Sophie left her hometown in Wales to experience different cultures around the world. She settled in Sydney and decided to launch her Handmade Baby Boutique brand Scribble & Sew. In 2018 Sophie introduced sewing workshops through Scribble & Sew and later re-branded as Sydney Creative.

Sydney Creative currently offer unique and flexible sewing workshops for busy Sydneysiders. Sophie understands that not everyone has a full day to spend learning how to sew, which is why she launched the Introduction To Sewing workshop. In the future, Sophie plans to offer more creative workshops such as painting, punch needling and social sewing.
