A fabulous fabric excursion!

For beginner sewers fabric shopping can be quite overwhelming. Come along on a fun fabric excursion and learn how to navigate your way around the fabric shop. We meet at Melbourne’s iconic Darn Cheap Fabrics and learn how to choose the right fabric for your project, zippers, buttons , threads and  most importantly how much fabric you need. Darn Cheap Fabrics offer all Sew This Pattern customers special discounts!

After our fabric excursion we will make our way to a cafe to discuss fabric preparation to get you ready to start sewing!
