Thursday 5th                           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.

Saturday 7th and 21st       Patchwork Saturday Morning                 10am to 12.30pm

Monday 9th and 23rd              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. 

 

Check out how many quilts we have finished on our Facebook page.   FREE

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 20th            Zippered Pencil/sewing Bag/tray                     9.30am to 2pm

Faye

            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 24th                 Meet Your Overlocker                     9.30am to 12 noon

Faye

         

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.

 

Cost $35.00 includes fabric for the class.

 

Thursday 26th                In the Hoop Machine Embroidery            10am to 12 noon

A small Anzac wall hanging, bag or mug rug is this month’s machine embroidery project.

Friday 27th                            Small Patchwork Project                 9.30am to 1.30pm

Faye

This table runner is made using quilt as you go method. It is a simple to do because as you join the pieces together you are also doing the quilting. You could use the same fabric in different colours or have completely different fabrics and each would produce a different look.

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.
