Zipper Workshop Saturday 1.30 – 4.30pm


Zipper Workshop. Saturday  2pm – 5pm

Overcome your fear of zips and learn two ways to insert a standard zipper (centered and lapped) and the secrets to installing an invisible zip without dramas. Achieve a professional finish when putting zips in to dresses, skirts and cushions!

This class is suitable for ‘beyond basics’ sewists who know how to use a sewing machine. Bring your own machine or use one of ours. Men are encouraged to attend! Our small class numbers (max 6) allow your teacher Gaye to give each student lots of personalised attention. The class requires a minimum of 4 students to proceed.

After attending our last workshop Cathy said:  “I had a great day, and was able to use my newly acquired lapped zipper knowledge straight away. I would recommend this workshop for anyone scared of sewing zippers.”

We will provide:  All equipment, zips and fabrics for practicing.

Bring along: A cut-out skirt, or cushion cover which is ready to insert a zip into. A zip suited to your project (a standard or invisible closed zipper with plastic teeth). Your own sewing kit if you have one.

Where: The Gaye Abandon Workroom, 122 Buckley St, Footscray.

When: Saturday 1.30pm – 4.30pm

Zipper Workshop

Come along to this Zipper Workshop and learn how to install standard and invisible zips into clothing and homewares.

Many new sewists can find zip insertion a little daunting, but it don’t have to stall your sewing projects. We will teach you the best way to insert a centred, lapped and invisible zip for a professional finish in this two and a half hour zipper workshop!

All materials, afternoon tea, notes and links to tutorials will be provided.

NB. If the scheduled time for this workshop does not suit you contact us to discuss an alternative time.  If you have friends, family members or colleagues you think might like to join you for some fun stitching get in touch to book a private class (minimum 4 students).
