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.
Hello there, I’m Caz and I would love to sew with you.
UsefulBox sewing classes are for the absolute beginner or for a seasoned sewist looking to upskill.
I began sewing when I was 9 years old and I haven't stopped. I studied Fashion Design at the prestigious East Sydney TAFE but have found that the home sewing world is much more me! I sew pretty much all of my own wardrobe and also most of my 2 kids clothes.
I love sewing and the solace it gives me. I enjoy making something from start to finish and the proud feeling when you wear something you've made.
I'm passionate about sewing for mental health and growing the sewing community in Sydney.
I'm aim for UsefulBox to be your starting point for inspiration, how to’s, reviews and access to our amazing sewing community.
