Welcome! Wind down, slow down, recharge and create!
Sewing brings me peace. It’s how I switch off. If I am stressed or overwhelmed or just sick of the world ticking way to fast, I put on some music and sit at my sewing machine. Sewing is my happy place.
That’s what I want to share with you!
How did Sewing with Amber start?
These classes were created after a fellow Mum’s request to teach her how to sew. Since that request, I started a small class and taught at the local Community Centre. It was an all new experience and way outside my comfort zone, but I am so glad that I did because since that first class, Sewing with Amber has evolved into what it is today. I came to realise that people want a space to create in an environment free from stress and technology. A place to recharge and learn and become immersed in a skill that has the ability to allow people to express who they are through their projects. I also get to meet some of the most amazing people.

What is my back story?
I began my sewing journey when I was a young girl. I have always been drawn to it. After I finished school, I completed my certificate IV in fashion design and manufacture and it wasn’t until I had my own kids, I discovered how much I loved teaching others the art of sewing.
How can I help you?
Allow me to share some of my skill and enthusiasm with you. While you create your projects, you will be learning the foundations which are applied throughout most sewing projects.
I specialise in teaching beginners. We start at the very beginning from threading your machine and winding your bobbin, to getting you comfortable and confident behind your machine and taking away the overwhelm.
I seek to provide a welcoming, warm, non intimidating space, where you can learn new sewing skills whilst making new friends and chat about all things life.
“Parent’s group with a creative difference”
As a mum of two, I understand the isolation which sometimes comes with the looking after little ones. I wanted to create a social outlet for parents to be able to relax for a couple of hours, learn a new skill and chat to other parents.”
