So the shop that I work at (my other hat) Gosford Sewing Machine Centre is about to move location. Not far from where we are currently located, just a few blocks up the road. We’re moving at the end of August and the grand opening will be the first week of September.

This means that we can start looking at classes again as the space we are moving into will be able to hold more people at the appropriate amount of space to comply with social distancing.

So to that effect –

BOM – next year will start in either February or March. It will run for 7 months. Theme is Cats/Dogs. If you would like to purchase the pattern up front so you can start stash diving now please head here. Classes will be once per month, a one day session $45 per person. At this stage it looks like it will be at the start of each month and that allows you to finish the block for homework.

If you would like to attend any of my classes please add your details to this email list here.

Classes for the remainder of this year will be binding and free-motion quilting. Due to the move and a few other things that are happening I can only schedule classes like this for the time being.

Free-motion quilting will be a one day class, $45 per person and you will learn up to 16 filler designs and some variations.

Binding classes are for my machine binding technique. No hand-sewing! $30 per person 2 hour session.

If you have any questions please feel free to text/ring me on 0416 023 637 or email

Class info will be updated here on the website once details are confirmed.

Hi everyone!

Some of you have been waiting an age for me to get some classes sorted and let you know what’s happening. BUT due to the general chaos that has been the start of this year, the lack of commitment from the venues I was chasing and the lack of space in my own house I had to put it all off.


A few weeks ago I was offered a teaching position at the Hobbysew store at Erina Fair. I accepted and classes start this weekend.

If anyone who follows me here is interested in attending please follow the link to book in via the Hobbysew website or ring the girls at the Erina store on (02) 4365 1127.

My classes are detailed below –
