We have officially started our Barbara McKenzie Sewing Academy classes, but if you're interested it isn't too late!
Contact us and we'll arrange a catch-up lesson for you, to get you up to speed with where the rest of the class is, and thereafter you can attend as normal on Saturday mornings.
Classes are held in River Club (Rivonia) on Saturday mornings, from 09:00 until 12:00.
Kindly note that payments for classes must be made prior to arriving to class. Each class is R350.00. Notes are provided and we require you to bring your own sewing machines. If you do not have one, please contact us and we can direct you to stores that have brand news ones and second hand ones.
