Sew your own awesome dungarees

Tuesday 25 June 2024




Tue 25 June, 18:30-20:30


159 17th Avenue, Tauranga South

Come make yourself something  comfortable, relaxed, durable, and a whole lot of you being uniquely you.  While making creative pals while you do it!

With a selection of patterns to   choose from, you'll sew yourself the most faithful and fun wardrobe piece ever:  A pinafore or a pair of dungarees. You'll learn how to read a pattern, best   practice for cutting out and merging sizes if need be, then work through some   snazzy sewing techniques to complete your special garment.

All sewists are welcome for this   project series - Easier beginners and more experienced patterns available to  borrow. Machines, tools, threads provided. BYO fabric of choice. A bonus zoom  prep class will be available prior to the course starting.

Sarah Sew Love is a self-proclaimed “hype girl for YOUR sustainable sewing   journey”! She’s been sewing, blogging, gramming and teaching sewing for over  10 years through her sewcial enterprise Sew Love and she’s now calling Tauranga home.

Sarah’s known for popping up workshops all over NZ; alongside  markets, conferences, schools, community houses and recycle centres to share her passion for sewing skills and sustainable living. “DIYing the reusables we need, repairing the things we love, embracing sewing slow and sewing together with others - it all makes our lives more special!”

In recent years she’s mostly known for her sellout upcycled scrap bum bags and dancing around on Instagram but hosting workshops is her homebase of happiness. Rest assured the energy is just the same in real life so come join one of her workshops this winter in our Social Fabric room. With big smiles and rainbow fabric scraps, her workshops always provide a safe space and encouragement for everyone’s creativity and self-expression through sewing.
