It's time to tick something off your New Year's Resolution list!

Every year on 31 December we tend to vow to let go of the bad and do better as the new year rolls in. A new year is often seen as a new beginning, fresh start and an opportunity to kick off on a clean slate. Eat healthier, go to gym and take steps towards a better future are generally on top of the list. I am sure this year has been no different.
Here we are just over a month into 2019 and chances are about 70% of people have already given up on their resolutions and goals, but NOT you!!!
If learning how to sew is on your list this year, you still have 11 more months to make this happen and Create.Hobby is here to help.




Create.Hobby offers sewing courses for beginner’s, intermediate and advance students.

In our level 1 course you will learn all the basics of sewing. We will teach you from scratch how to use a sewing machine, attach and insert elastic, zips, buttonholes and hems. You will also learn how to read a store bought pattern and to practice what you have learned during the 6 weeks, you will also complete 2 projects.


If you already know the basics, join us for our level 2 or 3 course. During these courses we focus more on the techniques that goes into the construction of clothes. In Level 2 you will sew up a stretch skirt, dress with invisible zip, darts and facings, pants with waistband, hip pockets and fly front, as well as a shirt with collar, yoke, button stand, placket and cuffs.


In level 3 you will learn how to trace a pattern for an already made garment, sew leggings, a lined tailored jacket and a handbag.

For those who would like to learn how to create their own patterns, we also have a pattern making course that runs over 8 weeks starting 4 and 8 May 2019. During this course we will teach you how to draft basic blocks from a pattern making book and how to adapt them.


Clothing not your main focus? We can also completely customize a course for you that will suit your individual needs. This we can be done through project classes or if your prefer focused attention, private lessons.

Also keep an eye out for our series of workshops this year, where we will focus on more specialized items.
