A little word about cancellations...

I get it, things happen! We all have lives filled with different things going on - flat tyres, sick kids etc.  Oh, and Covid!

If you can’t get to your class, I need to be given at least 48 hours notice please.  We can then work to reschedule your class.  If you are cancelling without rescheduling, within 48 hours, I would be happy to refund you half of your booking fee. 

If you don't make it to class without letting me know, or within 48Hours, you will forfeit the entire class fee. 

If you have booked a course, and miss a class, we will try to fit you into another class time.  However, if you can't make it, I'm afraid we won't be able to cover that class. 

If I need to cancel or reschedule, I will do my best to find another teacher and give you a heads up.  However, if I can’t, I will give you more than 24hours notice and we can work on a date change together.  If you would prefer not to reschedule and I have canceled, I will be happy to refund you the full class amount. 

What students are saying about UsefulBox

I am still buzzing from the calm found at a table with a humming machine.. not to mention your clever and creative mastery and warm authenticity!


What a fantastic lesson !! I am a beginner sewer and booked in my first lesson. Caz was very friendly and welcoming. She explained everything clearly with lots of hands on experience. I have already started recommending lessons to other people.


I gained so much knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm to start sewing my own projects! Caz is a passionate, patient and knowledgeable teacher. She helped me gain an understanding of; how my sewing machine works, how to read patterns and how to problem solve...she certainly equiped me with the tools and confidence I needed to get me started. 

If you're after a professional, yet friendly and comfortable atmosphere where you can learn the fundamentals of sewing, Caz is your girl!!


I went to Caz's one day beginners sewing workshop yesterday only ever having switched my sewing machine on to make sure it worked. The workshop was great, I would highly recommend it. Caz really does start from the very beginning, covering the functions of your machine, how to read patterns and different types of stitches/seams.


I would like to acknowledge the Gadigal people who are the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we live and learn. I would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Eora Nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal & Indigenous people present at our workshops and events.
