So You Want to Learn to Sew?

Thanks for visiting!

We are very excited at Kurui Cottage to be able to help you Learn to Sew or increase your garment construction knowledge.

Learn how to make unique clothes, that suit and fit your unique body shape - and even have pockets!

Your wardrobe of fitted, unique and expressive clothing is only a stitch (or two) away! Make a start today ...

We offer a range of lessons, workshops and open studio days where you can come along and learn new skills in our lovely workroom and there are no minimum booking numbers required for a class to go ahead - just click through to our Sewing Lessons page to see what's coming up!

Small class sizes mean we can be flexible and adapt lessons to meet all of our clients needs.

You can use our modern computerised sewing machines (no need to make an expensive investment while you decide whether sewing is really right for you); or you can learn on your own machine to become more familiar with its functions and capabilities.

Our studio boasts spacious individual sewing spaces, a large cutting table, pressing and overlocking stations. We carry a small range of basic haberdashery items such as threads, elastics & interfacings for purchase should you need them, and also have specialised equipment such as KAM snap presses for your use. There is a comfortable time-out space where you can relax with a refreshment, do your hand sewing, or just flick through our inspirational library and dream of your future projects ….

As well as scheduled lessons in our quiet country studio in the Noosa Hinterland, our mobile school is available to come to you within the greater Sunshine Coast region. We offer private lessons, or you can get together with a group of friends to share the cost. We prefer a maximum of 4 people per group so you all get the attention you deserve. Sessions are available any day of the week; morning, afternoon or evening - whatever suits your schedule best.

Home schooling lessons and NDIS sessions are also available on request.

Private lesson times are available most days of the week; morning, afternoon or evening. Please make contact to secure a time that suits you best.
