Thursday 1st                           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.

Wednesday mornings           Sewing Group                        9.30 to 12 noon

 

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. Christine will help with adjusting patterns to make certain that they will fit.

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

 

Saturday 10th and 24th      Patchwork Saturday Morning                10am to 12.30pm

Faye

This is a class where you bring along what you are sewing, and I am here to help. If you are uncertain about how to finish a project, or just lost inspiration, then this is the day to come along and hopefully get it finished.

Cost $20.00 per class

 

Friday 16th                      Paper pieced Heart                                  9.30am to 2 pm.

Faye

            Paper piecing is a simple and traditional quilt making technique where you have a paper pattern and a specific sewing order, and then you position fabric on the paper and sew through the paper and fabric. Hard to explain easier to do.

Once the block is completed you gently tear away the paper. You can be very precise using this method and once you get the hang of it be surprised at how easy it is.

            You may decide to make it into a wall hanging (our sample) or a cushion cover or even use it as the front of a bag, the choice is up to you.

           

You need to supply your own lunch                                      Cost $35.00. Plus, fabrics

 

Tuesday 20th                 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.

At the end of this class you will be surprised how easy it is to become its pal.  It does not matter how old or which brand of overlocker you own but it must be in good working order.

Booking is necessary and class size will be limited.

 

Cost $35.00 includes fabric for the class.

 

Thursday 22nd               In the Hoop Machine Embroidery            10am to 12.30pm

Faye

In the Hoop Puppy Purse – a zippered purse with appliqued dog on one side is our project

that is made ‘In the Hoop’ meaning that they have been digitized by Sweet Pea especially for an embroidery machine and are sewn/embroidered in the hoop. 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 and if paying for the class you can also obtain the design.

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

 

You will need to supply your own threads and fabrics etc.            Cost $15.00 per class

Friday 23rd                              Bag of the Month                             9.30am,11.30 am and 1.30pm

Faye

            As everyone is aware most major shops will stop giving plastic bags this year. So, with that in mind and after having a few ladies asking I am doing a very quick and easy basic bag. It uses half a metre of fabric and should only take you about half an hour to make. Just a plain simple bag with squared bottom corners and is strong.

It also a good way of using some of that ‘ugly’ fabric that stays in the cupboard taking up space because you don’t know why you got it in the first place.

 

            As this class will only take about 1 hour I am doing a few starting times.

 

                                                                                    Cost $10.00 per class. Plus, fabrics

            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.

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.
