Group Class includes 1hr lesson, plus 1hr practical time in studio.

Learn how to use a coverstitch machine to give a professional finish to your hems. For use especially on knit fabrics, coverstitching creates secure, even, stretchable seams that move with the fabric.  

We will be teaching on our studio's Janome CoverPro 2000CPX.

What you can bring:

  • You may like to bring a project (plus threads) you have been working on that requires this finishing touch.

  • Otherwise, you do not need to bring anything at all. We will provide all you need for this class.

What we'll provide:

  • Fabric for you to practice with.

  • Sewing studio.

  • Fun vibes in a professional environment.

  • Use of studio's coverstitch machine.

  • Professional experienced teacher - Rachel Walsh of Miss Pepper Sews, who is highly experienced with sewing with stretch fabric and knits. On a daily basis, Rachel is fulfilling orders for active wear. Rachel is an experienced seamstress who also specialises in making costumes - for stage or private functions.

Group Class:

$50. Includes 1 hour lesson + 1 hour in studio practical time. Group class size will be a maximum of 4 people, as we only have 1 coverstitch machine, having a max of 4 people only means that you will be able to clearly see Rachel's teaching, plus effectively take turns on our wonderful Janome!

Book to use our coverstitch machine:

If you would like to book time to use our Janome CoverPro 2000CPX, please come to one of our Social Sewing Days.




While Rachel can sew anything, her passions in sewing are activewear and dramatic costumes. Rachel is highly experienced with sewing with stretch fabrics and wishes to share her extensive knowledge with you so that you too can create with this versatile option in fabrics - from activewear tops & bottoms, to practical loungewear, to the essentials in pregnancy wear.
