Hiya! I'm Leesa the owner of Sewing Adventures!
Follow your dreams they say! Well my life has been full of those paths - I come from a creative handmade family, growing up doing markets - making, creating and working hard in a family that encouraged us to follow our own dreams.
Both my Nana and Mum gave me their sewing genes. From an era when fabric was abundant and plentiful, the suburbs and stores had fabulous fabric and haby, and people made their families clothes each season.
With my creative background, love of sewing and business development background - Sew Adventures was a path that I dreamed of but was never sure would happen. In July and August 2017 some crazy things happened.... the rainbows came out and the stars aligned to give me the opportunity to take on my new venture Sew Adventures was born!
Sewing Adventures was created out of the need to provide a social sewing space that offered classes that suited people like me! Like-minded souls who wanted more sewing experiences in a fun, friendly and social environment.
With a fabulous team of teachers, who are hightly skilled and love sewing - we have this amazing new Sewing Studio in Salisbury. I will be teaching all the Beginner Classes, Bag Making, Project Classes and running the Social Events! So come and join us..... learn to sew.... expand your skills with us.
Fun! Social! Creative! Let's Sew!
