Saturday, August 1st, 2020

Sewing classes ARE going ahead next week, starting from Monday 3rd August 2020.

Regarding the new COVID-19 restrictions, we called the COVID-19 hotline and had confirmation that yes, we are permitted to stay open.

We will follow the COVID-19 regulations as follows:

- Social distancing of 1.5mts

- All staff and students to wear a mask

- We will check your temperature upon arrival

- We ask you to either wash your hands with warm soapy water in the bathroom or use our hand sanitizer.

- The sewing machines are also positioned 1.5mts apart

- Please stay at home if you have any symptoms or have been tested for COVID-19 and are waiting for your results.

If you would like to make a mask in class, I have the pattern and instructions. You need to bring the following:

Fabric quantity per mask:

Bring your scraps or approx.

X3 squares of fabric, width 7 inches, length 18 inches (18cm x 46cm) for the large size.

Fabric type:

Closely woven e.g. patchwork fabrics, sheeting or equivalent.

TIP – bring one colour or co-ordinating fabrics

Elastic is available to purchase in class.

If you bring vilene, you can also copy the pattern in class.

If you don’t wish to make a mask, please bring your sewing project as usual.

If you have any questions just let us know, otherwise we look forward to seeing you in your sewing class next week.

Happy sewing,

We were absolutely delighted to be awarded as a Telstra Business Awards Victorian State Finalist for the 3rd year running this year!

Telstra Business Awards 2019 Maree Pigdon Sewing Centre 05

We would like to thank all our students and customers, our online community, our team of teachers and friends and family for all your support.

For the occasion, I made myself a new dress from the Vintage Vogue Pattern 2903.

I made it from a cardinal red delustered stain. I lengthened the skirt to full length, created a new bodice midriff panel, re-shaped the neckline to suit me and used the long sleeve.

I made a petticoat with 3 tiers of netting and finished with a poppy print chiffon draped over the bust line and over the shoulder.
