Restrictions may have eased in Australia and New Zealand, but authorities are still recommending that we exercise caution. And with limits still in place on numbers allowed in pubs and restaurants, we’re finding ourselves at home a lot more than we were pre COVID-19. Which is why we’re on the hunt for some great DIY tutorials right now.

Inspired by Anny Duff of Good Studios' mending tutorials on Instagram, we’re rounding up the best online sewing classes – covering everything from beginner level stitching, to helpful repairs, and couture-quality craftsmanship. You’re welcome!

 

1) Stitchless for the sewing beginner

Patagonia is all about extending the useful life of your clothing. Which is why they have launched a series of Repair and Care tutorials as part of their Worn Wear program. Through the brand’s IFIXIT platform, Patagonia teaches you how to do everything from repairing a zipper to mending a tear in your favourite shirt.

 

4) Threads for the semi professional

If you consider yourself a pretty seasoned sewer, then Threads magazine’s YouTube channel will be great for you. It is full of some fairly technical guides and even couture-level craftsmanship, but it's definitely something to work up to.
