Our Sewing Course Offering
In our sewing courses we aim to stimulate your creativity and provide you with the knowledge you need to make your own clothes, or alter and repair your existing clothes. We welcome new participants, and we are always happy to see our old friends returning.
Sign up for our sewing courses by registering below. There are a limited number of spots for all of our courses, so sign up and pay in advance to guarantee your spot. We need a minimum number of 4 participants to run a course, if this is not filled by the registration deadline we need to unfortunately cancel the course. In that case, you get your money refunded immediately. Once the minimum is filled and the course is confirmed, you can also register after the deadline; as long as there are free spots left.
- Bank transfer (instructions for bank transfer follow when you reserve your course spot)
- Credit card

Fabric Shops in Zurich
We have a small selection of organic and sustainable textiles in our atelier, but we can also recommend a few other fabric shops in Zurich:
- Bernina (Talacker 35, 8001 Zürich) sells sewing machines, patterns, thread, and a small selection of fabrics.
- Apropos (Hohlstrasse 201, 8004 Zürich) sells a variety of special fabrics, but usually at a relatively high price.
- Faybee is an online shop, mostly for organic jersey. The owner is one of our neighbours in Binz.
