Machine Sewing Social

Do you have an unfinished project, need some inspiration for starting a new project or just looking for some like minded folk to talk with over the sewing machine? Come along for an evening of chat, cups of tea, inspiration and of course plenty of machine sewing tips and tricks. 

Please note: this is not a workshop or lesson, however Bronnie our generous and multi-talented sewing and craft teacher will be on hand with advice and assistance to help you get to the next stage with your own projects! 

(If you would like to learn Machine Sewing, please come join one of our Machine Sewing Classes, or check out our other craft and creative workshops here)

*Students will also be expected to assist their tutor in a post-course clean down of the room & anything used during this time. Please understand we are putting in strict protocols across the board to ensure the safety of our entire community.

Tutor: Bronnie Zervos

Bronnie started crafting as a way to practise mindfulness and create time for herself in a busy world. Her journey started with sewing cushions and beach bags which proved to be very popular at local markets and in her Etsy store. Bronnie began to explore other crafts including jewellery making, crochet and macrame. While she loves making her own creations for her Etsy store and handmade gifts for family and friends, her real passion is inspiring others to get creative and enjoy making their own projects. Bronnie believes everybody has a creative side!

‘So thrilled and excited for my new hobby! I can't wait to come back and learn many new skills. Bronnie was so lovely and patient and able to give us lots of one on one time which you can't pay for. Thank you for a lovely afternoon and for introducing me to my new hobby/obsession :)’
