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.

  • 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.

Our story began in 2018 in a small Redfern studio. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and we haven't looked back. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life.

In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy.

Today, our classes run from our shop at 126 Regent St, Redfern. Our Classes bring people together, often in a circle around a table, whether it's for a sewing class, jewellery making or crafting, there's something special about being creative in a group together.
