I will openly admit that I am not an expert DIY-er, so today I’m going to The Workroom. They do a lot of different classes there, like sewing classes. You can even rent out sewing machines there by the hour to work on personal projects, so I definitely want to get on a sewing machine, but here’s to hoping that I don’t stitch my fingers together. This space is really impressive for a lot of reasons. First off, it is so huge, they can run three classes at the same time. You can have classes at the front of the store and in the back. Secondly, they have 80 different classes here. You can do garment construction, you can make quilts, you can do weaving, hand dying and leather work. Each session is 3 hours, which is a solid amount of time.
Another thing that makes this place so special is some of the equipment that they have here, so for example, they have this huge long arm and that’s used for stitching and designs into larger pieces of work like quilts, for example. If you want to do some DIY-ing, they fully support that here because they have tons of different things you can buy and take home. They have fabrics, patterns, threads, needles and they even have some quilting machines that you can take home, like a portable one and at home you can cut your own quilting patterns, which I thought was really cool.
After all this talk of making stuff, I want make something on a sewing machine, which I haven’t touched since the 8th grade so I’m very confident in myself, but y’ know, might as well try. Ready for Deepa the expert sewer? Just put your foot on the pedal. And all the magic happens, like this. I don’t know what I’m going to use this for, but I’ll figure it out! And there you have it I’m quite proud of my self For having not having touched a sewing machine for 10 years. That’s good. It’s the newest fashion. Pocket patches, just put it like this and you’re good to go.
Students Sewing their Own Uniforms
Most parents of school kids would be familiar with the hardship of school uniform costs. But a South Auckland school may have come up with a solution. As part of their sewing classes, students have made their own uniforms. Te Okiwa McLean has more. Sewing together under a common cause. For the past two years these students of Roscommon School have been learning how to sew. It started off with sewing hats for the school which led on to something big. And their principal has allowed the students to wear the school uniform they’ve made although it isn’t the original school uniform.
But it’s not only about sewing clothes – it’s also strengthening bonds between the Maori syndicate and the Samoan syndicate. Sewing is her passion – and teaching how to sew is her bread and butter. Black says anything is possible. And some of these students are already thinking of their future. Black hopes to continue this in years to come – lastly to implement sewing into schools to benefit the students.
