Looking for an easier, faster way to sew?

Hi, I’m Sarah and I wanted to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ for downloading my guide – ‘How to Set Yourself up for Sewing Success’.

I created that guide after seeing aspiring fashion designers and home sewists of all ages get lost in the endless articles, guides and YouTube videos available online.

If you’re starting out fresh on your sewing journey, you may find sewing guides assume you’re up-to-date with terminology, or skip beginner steps. Pretty quickly, you end up feeling frustrated and wondering whether sewing is right for you.

I’m here to tell you it is.

With over 40 years of experience in the clothing industry, I’ve worked in clothing factories, taught at a tertiary level and started my own label – and it’s my goal to help YOU develop the sewing skills you need to develop a fulfilling hobby, perhaps take your passion to a commercial level, and start thinking “oh I can easily fix that” instead of “I guess I’ll toss that out” the next time you think your garment is damaged beyond repair.

 I am your tutor at ‘Maker By Nature Sewing School’, teaching fun and engaging online classes for sewists who want to:

? SAVE TIME: Forget that sinking feeling of reaching a project midpoint and realising there’s a sewing technique you’re missing, or a problem with your fabrics and patterns. Learn the best time-saving sewing tricks to make your sewing projects more fun.

? DEVELOP THEIR STYLE: Get ready to be asked “Wow, where did you get that?” by creating one-of-a-kind items that showcase your unique personality and style

? SEW SUSTAINABLY: Discover how to create garments using eco-friendly materials. Create and mend treasured items and help stop garment landfill.

? JOIN FUN GROUP CHATS: Join online meeting groups to discuss sewing problems as a group. Meet like-minded sewists and share your creative ideas, patterns and techniques.

? LIFETIME VIDEO ACCESS: Enjoy Zoom sessions with me (and other fellow students) to discuss the course plus lifetime access to video tutorials and modules so you can learn in your own time.


Just as creating your dream garment starts by unraveling the thread from the spool, I want to get to the root of your passion and goals before we ever talk about lessons and modules.

If sewing is your passion, I want to help you turn it into an enjoyable past-time or a profitable career.
