Theresa Czerniak, founder of the Sewing Room, originally trained as a dress designer and has spent the last 25 years working in various creative areas in the world of fabric and design. She has worked in a wide range of fields, from designing garments in hand-woven tweed, making one-off pieces in leather and suede for rock bands, creating costumes and drapes for TV commercials and film to working with delicate silk and lace for beautiful bridal wear. Theresa has also spent ten years working alongside interior designers, making everything from heavy drapes for period houses to fine silk Japanese blinds, draping marquees for weddings and crafting giant butterflies for themed events. She just loves fabric! You can find out more on Theresa’s website www.thesewingroom.ie or join The Sewing Room on Facebook. The Sewing Room also sells a range of haberdashery, such as scissors, pins, threads, needles, zips and much more.
The 6-week Sewing for All courses have small class numbers and are therefore suitable for all levels, from the complete beginner, who wishes to take up a pair of jeans or alter a skirt, to the more experienced seamstress making a garment from a commercial pattern. Please contact Theresa prior to starting class to discuss what you wish to cover, as everyone will be working on their own project. Some sewing machines are provided, but please feel free to bring your own. Material is not provided but you will be supplied with some fabric to get you started in the first class. You should bring your own basic sewing kit: dressmaking scissors, pins, needles etc. (These items are available to purchase in the shop and at the class if necessary.)
Course fee: €165 for 6 weeks
Our classes are small, ensuring that everybody gets the attention they need. Our premises are newly refurbished, spacious and bright. We have a kitchen and serve tea at every class. Plentiful parking, which is free after 19.00 and on Sundays, is available near the shop.
