Covid-19 Update

Under the current circumstances, and in the best interests of everyone???s health and well-being, we have made the following changes in the sewing school:

1. We have closed the sewing school as of today, Tuesday 24th March 2020 and have extended the holiday break from the standard 3 weeks to 7 weeks to give us time to assess the situation. At the moment we have Term 2 re-commencing from Monday 11th May 2020. All those who have indicated they would like to come back, will be placed into Term 2 and we will re-assess the situation closer to the time.

2. We have cancelled our Kids Easter School Holiday program.

3. We have moved all our Overlocking Workshop students currently booked in for this weekend Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March 2020, to our Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd August 2020 workshops.

To continue to support you through this time and from listening to student feedback over the past week here are some things we???re looking to do:

1. Offer a weekly sewing skype or zoom group call program to stay connected, motivated and to ask questions and plan your sewing projects while you sew at home.

2. Create a Maree Pigdon Sewing School private Facebook group so you can post and share what you???re sewing at home.

3. We will utilise this time to film more online sewing courses that you can follow at home to continue learning from us and developing your sewing skills.
