Everyone can learn to sew!

SewGood™ specializes in sewing classes designed for the absolute beginner!

Named Home Based Business of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce, New Westminster 2017

At SewGood™ you start at the very beginning and learn proper sewing techniques. Many students have never even touched a sewing machine before.

Each level introduces new techniques and reinforces the ones you have already learned. You learn sewing skills that you can apply to anything, be it sewing your own clothing, mending, or home decor.

I supply all of the equipment required, so you don’t even have to own a sewing machine to learn! My focus is to work with commercial patterns and build basic sewing skills as you progress through the four levels.

Class sizes are limited to four students, so there is a lot of individualized attention, and you can learn in a very non-intimidating (and fun!) environment.

SewGood for Kids™ is a unique program to teach kids how to sew. The program follows the school year with ongoing weekly classes. The kids go at their own pace, following a curriculum that is designed specifically for boys and girls aged six and up.

Sewing classes are taught at my home studio in New Westminster, BC. My students come from all over Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, and the Lower Mainland. I am very centrally located and close to transit and the Skytrain. Read more about SewGood™...

“My daughter and her best friend have been attending Carley’s sewing classes for several years now. They really enjoy their time in these classes and have had loads of fun gaining confidence and learning how to make bags, clothes, and crafts. They have created some beautiful things and developed a sense of pride that one feels in accomplishing a task on their own. Carley is bubbly, enthusiastic, and nurturing with the girls. They love being in her home and learning the art of sewing. I would highly recommend these classes, and of course Carley!”

"HEY GUYS: She’s really good at making you feel like you’re smart and a total success, even when you goof. And I know: I ran the sewing machine with the foot up (she had warned me about not doing that…) causing it to build a tiny little bird’s nest of thread right where it shouldn’t do that, and she didn’t even bat an eye or call me a single unkind name. Impressive!”

“My 12 year old daughter has been taking Carley’s weekly sewing class for almost a year now and she absolutely loves it! Carley’s caring and easygoing demeanour instantly made my daughter feel comfortable. The classes allow the children to work at their respective levels all the while creating fantastic garment pieces. Thank you Carley for fostering her love of sewing!”

“My daughter loves Carley’s sewing class. The small class size and the instructor’s patience and expertise really made learning to sew a fun experience for my 11 year old. She can’t wait to return next year!”

“Carley is an excellent teacher and such a friendly, welcoming person. In her beginner classes Carley makes sure you know the basics including how to take body measurements, how to use a commercial pattern, information about different types of fabrics and how to choose the appropriate one as well as how to lay out and cut your fabric. She also ensures that you are knowledgeable about the basics of a sewing machine and how to use certain tools. Carley is willing to answer any questions you have along the way and she is very helpful in doing so. Once you have taken a few of her classes you will have learned anything you will ever need to know about sewing, allowing you to produce your own garments at home! I sincerely recommend Carley at SewGood if you are interested in learning to sew!”

“Carley is an excellent teacher, very warm and welcoming, and definitely knows her stuff. She made learning easy for myself and for the absolute beginners in the class as well. Her work space is perfect, suited for four people (the max class size) and stocked with everything you could possibly need (including some warm tea when you’re in the mood!).”
