I have always been passionate about sewing, and have followed this journey since I was a young girl. I followed my childhood dream, and studied at the Durban University of Technology, where I received my Diploma in Fashion and Textile Design.
I’ve used my unique skills and techniques to design and create stunning gowns for Weddings, Matric Dances, and Custom Casual outfits for a number of years, of which it was a privilege to meet all my clients. I’ve always designed ready to wear fashion ranges, selling both online and in local stores.
In 2014 I started Sewing Classes, so that I could share my skills and passion of sewing with the ladies and children of the community. And what fun we have! While learning new sewing skills, we enjoy a social time, chatting about the latest fashions and news!
I feel that the worlds of creativity, fashion and textiles should be relevant, so that we can enjoy them on a personal level- for my sewing class pupils to say “Yeah I made it, and it looks really good”…and I am always impressed with what they make!!I hope you will join my online community, where I will be sharing the fun and skills that are shared in my sewing classroom. Please feel free to contact me with any of your questions, I’ll be happy to help, Kirsten
