Learn to draft your own patterns!

If you have ever wanted to learn how to make your own patterns, now is your chance.
Create.Hobby will be hosting a pattern making course, starting Saturday 31 August.

During this 8 week course you learn how to draft a basic women't bodice, sleeve, skirt and trouser block to your own or standard measurements. We will also teach you how to adapt and manipulate these bacic blocks into custom patterns.

You can also learn to draft patterns through private lessons.
Private lessons are one on one with a lecturer and we try schedule the lessons at a time that suits you. The great thing about these lessons are that we can custom them to teach you exactly what you would like to learn. Cost is R490 per hour per person or R3800 per person for a 10 hour package. Cost excludes materials

Get crafty this winter!

Winter in Cape Town is associated with strong winds, cloudy skies and ever so often rain. Even though it may sound like doom and gloom, we say this weather is perfect to get crafty. 
Think along the lines of a cup of tea and some knitting or a peaceful day under the blankets with some crocheting. If you have always wanted to venture into the crafty side of life, Create.sewing shop is your answer.

They have recently launched "The Social Crochet Series". What is this you may ask?!

Well at least once a month they will teach you the joys of crochet through demonstrating to you different techniques and helping you make a variety of projects. At only R100 a session (excluding materials), Natasha will show you how to crochet anything from circles, that you can transform into a bookmark or earrings, squares that can form part of a blanket and many more exciting projects. 

The initiative was kick-started  one Thursday morning in June at the Create.sewing shop loft. A group of lovely ladies joined Natasha and they all enjoyed learning a new skill while being able to chat and sip on a cup of tea/coffee.

If you would like to join us for one of "The Social Crochet Series" classes, contact us on to get more information and book your spot.
