Welcome to the Gaye Abandon School of Sewing and Upcycling

Our workroom is located in Footscray in Melbourne's Inner West, where we offer stimulating sewing lessons, textile workshops and private classes with an emphasis on sustainability. We cater to students of all levels from absolute beginners keen to learn sewing skills, to those wanting to finesse their knowledge or work on a special project. We've got all the equipment needed and lots of ideas to get you started. Learn how to sew clothes and homewares, read sewing patterns, use a sewing machine, stitch by hand, mend, refashion your wardrobe and much more!
We also offer a range of Gaye Abandon handmade products including arm warmers and hot-water-bottle-covers all created from upcycled textiles.
