As a sewing teacher Jane is very patient, creative and helpful. Having only a small class is really beneficial as I can focus on my project and help right on hand and having supplies in the classroom ie zips, scissors etc is so accessible and if I forget my cotton I can purchase cheaper than in a retail store. I have learnt so much in the years I have been a student and just love the environment.



Our daughter Samantha has been attending sewing classes with Jane for five years.  Sam was at primary school when she first began her sewing lessons, and is now in high school.

I don’t sew myself, and Sam had minimal sewing experience before attending Janes classes.  But thanks to Jane’s wonderful teaching Sam has come a long way and now makes beautiful clothes for herself.

Sam absolutely loves going to her sewing lessons, and a big part of this is due to Jane’s cheerful and outgoing nature.  We have found Jane to be a wonderful, patient and caring teacher.  Jane is professional and efficient, and always personable, she makes learning fun!  When it was Jane’s birthday Sam and her friend Hanna decided they would bake Jane a Sewing Machine shaped birthday cake to celebrate Jane’s special day.  For the girls to do this it shows what a great person Jane is, and how much the children adore her.

Attending classes with Jane has been very beneficial for our daughter, and Sam truly looks forward to her weekly lesson.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jane to any family who would love their child (boy or girl) to learn the wonderful art of sewing and clothing design.

Our daughter Ella has been sewing with Jane for 6 years. Ella just loves the weekly classes. Not only has she learned new skills but has also forged lovely friendships with her fellow classmates. Watching Ella’s confidence grow as the years have gone by has been truly well worth the investment. Ella proudly wears all of her wonderful clothes & refuses to hand on any of the clothes she has out grown ( which is quite a few), they are lovely reminders of her progress. Jane is a fabulous teacher and nurtures her pupils to meet their full potential.

“I’ve started my sewing hobby 3 years ago with Jane and I couldn’t be happier! At the beginning, I couldn’t even thread a machine, now I’m making gorgeous garments and I’ve learnt heaps. When looking for the right class, Jane was totally the right choice because, unlike all other options I researched, I can choose my project and Jane teaches me step-by-step at my level and pace. My sewing group is also excellent and makes the whole experience even better.”

I’ve always wanted to do something creative but never knew what. Then I found Jane. I was a complete novice when I joined but was welcomed into a fun and friendly environment. Jane has so much passion for sewing and is always eager to help and pass on her knowledge. There’s certainly no better feeling than finishing your first garment knowing that you made it!

” a fun and friendly atmosphere where everyone works at their own pace. I am an absolute beginner sewer and Jane is a fabulous and incredibly patient teacher”


“I went to my first sewing class to learn how to take up a pair of trousers and by the end of the first term I was making the first of several shirts I’ve made in the last year. Jane is a great teacher and the classes are very relaxed so everyone can work at their own pace.”
