Sewing Events
and Courses for
Beginners

Learn the basics or more

Have you always wanted to learn how to use a sewing machine? Join my beginners’ sewing course in small groups of up to 3 participants, for all ages, or come for private lessons. 

Believe me, you don't necessarily need to be into fashion to want to be able to sew easily and effectively.

You may want to simply learn how to sew a zipper, but not necessarily design a whole jacket. Or you would like to just shorten your pants, fix that annoying hole in a sweater, or make some minor adjustments to a piece of clothing without running to the tailor.

You might want to sew a small piece for your kids, but don’t worry, you don’t need to measure their size for that. Learn how to make simple creations that you can download from the internet, or use a pattern from my stock.

This course will give you tips and tricks to help you get started on sewing, have fun in the process and enjoy your very own sewing powers!

 

Knitting courses for beginners are also available.

Fabric is provided for a fee, amount depending on the project.

Or even better: bring your own fabric!

After completing the 4-week course, you won’t go home empty-handed: whatever your creation is, it is yours to take home.

EXTENDED COURSES 

If you wish, you can continue the course  for an additional 4  weeks or go straight for this one  if you have some sewing experience . During those 4 weeks, we will learn how to choose, cut and assemble PDF patterns. It could be  kids’ clothing , T-shirts, tank-tops, pyjamas, A-dresses or any other pattern on a beginners level – whatever you feel comfortable with. You can also learn how to make a duplicate of that precious shirt that you can no longer find in any shop!

You can also learn how to use an overlock sewing machine.

About me

Hi, my name is Annika Gronowitz. I was born in Sweden, and have been living in Israel for many years. I’m fluent in English, Hebrew and Swedish and can teach you in any of these languages.

I started sewing many years ago. I loved it so much that 10 years ago I became my grandkids’ personal tailor.  Nothing could be more satisfying. They just love their grandma's clothes, at least up to the age of 12! And I of course make all of their Purim costumes.

 

During Covid times, I believe I made more than 100 face masks in endless colors. 

 

Sewing and knitting give you the greatest pleasure and fulfillment and I want you to enjoy it just as much as I do, AND IF I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT!!
