About The Event
Expressions of interest are now open for our beginner Sewing Workshop for September 2020.
So you want to learn to sew?
Here's how it works:
Over 6 weeks you will learn how to sew a number of products for baby and yourself. We will give you shopping lists ahead of time with all measurements so you can be prepared and ready to go. This way, we can keep costs down and still teach you amazing skills!

Week 2. Decorating dish towels
Week 3. Bandanna bib 2 per person
Week 4. Soft owl toy
Week 5. Kids apron
Week 6. Sew a skirt for yourself

We have 4 sewing machines to borrow if required
Why do these workshops exist?
Here are Mumma Got Skills, we hope to show parents that meaningful learning toys and experiences are so much more fulfilling when made by you! We also know what it's like to lose a sense of your identity as you busy yourself with the all consuming needs of your baby. We love our babies of course, but we also require the space to free our minds and busy our hands. That's why these workshops exist, to provide you with the chance to make something totally guilt free while your babies mingle.
Did you know that you are helping another Mum with your ticket purchase?
We put 50% of our profits back into developing free and low cost workshop for parent's with post natal anxiety and depression. We also provide workshops to pockets of the community that need it most.
