Make Something At The Workroom

Learn to Sew!

Our most popular classes continue to be our range of Machine Essentials workshops where you can learn the basics of the Sewing Machine and also the Serger. Over the last fifteen years we have taught over 860 sessions to beginner sewists like you!

We’ve designed Essentials workshops to unlock the mystery of each machine and turn it into a tool you can confidently use! These classes are the first step to making all the projects of your dreams. We can't wait to help you along the way.

If it were possible to give Karyn & the team at The Workroom 100 stars, I would! Their attention to detail, care & thoughtfulness are just a few reasons why I will continue to support their shop — bonus is that they carry the most amazing collection of goodies!

I took the Sewing Machine Essentials class today with Johanna instructing.

I loved my experience, thank you!
Johanna was great. I feel like I walked away with tips & knowledge that could otherwise have taken me ages to figure out. And the class left me so excited about making things!

Sharp scissors are a joy to cut with. Our scissor sharpening is done with a professional scissor sharpening system that maintains the correct blade angle. It has a sharpening and a honing stone to get the blades sharper than new once they are serviced.
