We are unable to offer sewing classes for kids, both group and private classes.

As we share our studio space with another business, we are unable to have kids in the space during the week. And on weekends, the space is full with adult classes.
We suggest Sew Make Create in Chippendale or Made by Me Workshop in St Peters

Thanks, Caz xx Thanks for your understanding.

Our location

21 Shepherd Street, Marrickville

Our door is at the back of the building on Jabez Street.

Pakring is tricky during the week. You are welcome to drop off your bags at the back door on Jabez Street (just ring the bell) and then go find a park on the neighboouring streets - Weymess or Perry are the best bet. Parking on the weekend is easier with all day spots nearer to the studio. Click here for a map link.

About Usefulbox

Caz began Usefulbox in 2015 after she was asked to help her friends take up sewing.  She just loved it so much that she hasn't stopped!

Usefulbox has grown to include classes for beginner and intermediate sewists, to Quilting, Embroidery and Slow stitching.

We want to give you the confidence to take on new sewing challenges and to help you gain new skills. Come and join the sewing club!

We would like to acknowledge the Gadigal people who are the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we live and learn. We 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.
