Sutura is Latin for sewing and that is just what we teach! Our programs are designed with busy people in mind. The “Show and Sew” philosophy is based on the concept that relaxed hands create better results. Each course and workshop therefore includes the fabric and patterns for class samples, your workbook, a full sized pattern, and the use of tools and equipment. Students will just need to bring their chosen project and, where applicable, machine to class.

The Sutura Style Sew Like a Pro Courses guide students through lessons based on Fashion Industry techniques, specially modified for the home sewing environment. Learn the tips and tricks of professional dressmakers, designers and tailors. All programs are co-ed and projects are chosen by the student to reflect their unique style and taste. All our sewing courses include basic pattern making methods to ensure that students develop the skills needed to be able to bring their own design ideas to life.

The Sutura Style programs are listed in the order they should be taken. If you have never used a sewing machine or have problems with fitting sewing patterns, then start with a novice class. All our courses involve pattern making methods and each course builds on the skills learned in the previous program. Prior to registering for the Sew Like a Pro Course, you should be able to: sew and finish a seam, install a zipper with professional results, make simple adjustments to patterns for fit and work with bias binding.

Please note: Workshops and classes are single session programs, courses last from 4-8 weeks. Click on the workbook images to get the full details.

The Sew Simply and Made to Measure Workshops introduce students to the world of fashion sewing and pattern fitting. These two workshops are the foundation to the Sutura Style Courses and these workshops or equivalent knowledge are pre-requisites to the Sew Like a Pro Series.
