Wednesday excluding 23rd                      Sewing Group                        9.30 to 12 noon

 

Please note no sewing group on 23rd May due to Craft and Craft Fair

 

This sewing group is where you come along with your projects and machines and sew in a friendly atmosphere with others that have similar interests. Be a beginner or more experienced all are welcome to come along and sew in a very friendly atmosphere.

Please note you will need a pattern as we do not do pattern drafting, for beginners look for the easy patterns available from all major pattern suppliers. We are here to help to adjust the pattern to fit you.

 

Tea/coffee/ water is provided.                                                         Cost $20.00 per class

Thursday 3rd                           Look and Learn Club                     from 10am

 

            Our aim is to hold an informal and relaxed friendly meeting. We are hoping that ladies will bring along sewing items to show, and to hopefully inspire us all.

Everyone working here does enjoy these sessions and hope that you all do as well.  We will have our samples for the coming month’s classes to show and if time would just slow down we may even get the opportunity to sew for ourselves and show these items as well – no promises ...

If there is something new in the market place and we know about it, we will show it, or if we don’t know and you mention it we will endeavour to find out more for you.

If you are having a problem, chances are someone else had the same thing so please ask and hopefully we or someone at the meeting can help.

 

Afterwards stay around for morning tea/coffee.

 

Cost is a minimum of $2 which goes towards morning tea.

Faye                                      

U.F.O. is short for Un Finished Objects,

 If you have a bag, table runner or quilt stashed away, and you are uncertain what or how to finish it, or just lost inspiration, then this is the day to come along and hopefully get it finished.     This is also a great class for anyone who has a project (i.e. Cot quilt, table-runner or quilt) that they particularly wish to make but need help in doing so or a beginner who just needs assistance in getting started.

Friday 11th                            Small Patchwork Project                 9.30am to 1.30pm

Faye

This simple yet striking lap quilt is ‘just what is needed’ to throw over your knees this winter. Squares and rectangles are what we are joining into larger blocks. A combination of six fabrics has been used, making this an ideal scrappy quilt. This project is a great project for those wanting to refresh their cutting and piecing skills or for the beginner wishing to learn.

Monday 14th and 28th             Sewing for Someone                                1pm to 4pm

Faye              

            Our popular charity sewing sessions are still popular. The sewing is not difficult, and it is a fun way to learn patchwork and at the same time help make a young child’s life a little better.

If you are a beginner or more experienced it doesn’t matter - all are welcome. All you need to bring is your sewing machine, threads, pins and scissors then we will supply the rest. We are making small ‘cuddle’ quilts for Foster Kids WA.

Friday 18th                      Zippered Pencil/sewing Bag/tray            9.30am to 2pm

Faye                                       Repeated class due to being popular

            This pencil case opens out into a useful tray to keep contents close at hand and easy to see and reach, even though its designed for pencils I can find lots of uses for this bag/tray.  This bag zips up securely for travel or storage.

Great to use for pencils, sewing, knitting, kids toys, travel and more.

You need to supply your own lunch                                      Cost $35.00 per class plus fabrics

 

Tuesday 22nd                Meet Your Overlocker                     9.30am to 12 noon

          Are you scared of your overlocker? Well then, this class is designed for you.

Don’t know which is the upper looper or the lower looper? Scared of tensions or just don’t know how to thread it. Learn how to treat your overlocker as a friend not an enemy.

            We will explain the mystery of your overlocker. We will go through the 2 ways of threading, tensions, normal 4 and 3 thread over-locking, roll hems and explain all about differential feed.

Wedding ring block from Sweat Pea Designs is a machine embroidery design, so no more messy pieces to worry about. This is ideal for a quilt with all the blocks made in the 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 or 7x7 hoop. The blocks are then joined with your sewing machine ( we used the quilt as you go method). You could make a larger quilt or anything you like, such as a table runner, bag, placemat, sewing machine cover etc.

Do come along and join in the fun of seeing how it’s made. Simply bring your machine and USB stick or similar transfer tool. For those who do not wish to bring their embroidery machine you are still welcome to come along to see how it’s done.

 

For those not able to attend please contact us about obtaining the design.

CLASS BOOKINGS and REFUNDS:

This is a problem for all organisations which runs classes. Universities and TAFE colleges have the rule that your place is not reserved until fees have been paid in full. Ocean Keys Sewing Centre will accept a minimum deposit of 50% to reserve your place with the balance to be paid on the day.

If you must cancel and do so at least 4 days prior to the class starting, we will issue a store credit less a $5.00 cancellation fee. This gives us time to fill your place if possible and to organise teachers and staff rosters. We require a minimum of 3 people per class.

Ocean Keys Sewing Centre has the right to cancel classes 48hrs prior to commencement if below the minimum number of students and a full refund shall be issued.

Please book early to avoid disappointment.

When you have registered for your class a list of requirements shall be given or emailed when available.

Would you or a friend like to receive this class list by e-mail? Simply e-mail your address to oceankeyssewing@bigpond.com.au. Simply ask to be placed on the class information list.
