what others are saying


My name is Dezi and I had booked into Maree’s sewing classes, where I made my first pair of pyjamas.

Since then, I have gone on and made 4 compete sets and 5 bottom pants.

I have now moved onto making a fully lined vest and have made 3 after I enrolled for a full term of lessons.

I am booked in again for another term and will be a student for a very long time.

People ask me why I travel so far to learn how to sew? The answer I give is simple. I wanted to learn from the best and am being taught by a master!

Maree Pigdon apart from being a lovely person, is truly a master of sewing.

Maree not only knows how to sew, Maree knows how to teach others. Nothing is too much for her and her attention to detail is something above the rest. Maree knows what is going on even when she is in a far corner.

My advice to anyone who is serious about learning how to sew, then do not waste your time or money, go to the master, Maree Pigdon.

Maree, Thank you so much for the The Zero To Sewing in a Weekend - Beginner sewing clinic I can't even express how much I enjoyed my time learning from you. My husband commented that he had never seen me so excited by something other than my children!!! I am so proud of my PJ's and also the PJ trousers I have done so far for my kids.



The Zero To Sewing in a Weekend - Beginner sewing clinic was fantastic as a self taught sewer to learn how to do things properly! I thought I knew more than I actually did... now I know how to do all of those things and more because of Maree!
