TUTU SEWING CLASSES IN WOODEND

I have had a wonderful response to the classes I advertised in January. They are pretty much booked out, so I am offering two more classes in December, the weekend of 14/15 December and a midweek class on 17/18th December. Email me at danilegge@me.com for more details, or to register.

Blossom the Fairy tutu

I was recently asked by Energetiks dancewear to make a tutu to be worn by "Blossom the Fairy" at the opening of their new store in Ivanhoe. The opening was last weekend, so I can now post a photo of the tutu.

Tutu making classes in Woodend

I have finally decided on dates to offer classes here. I have a large sewing room that can take four students comfortably. Classes go for two full days, and in that time you should make a tutu and a tiara, and maybe do some decorating. Price is $500 with all materials provided, or $450 if you bring your own net and lycra. DATES January 11/12, January 18/19, January 25/26 (I already have two bookings for this weekend). I will also offer one mid week class, with two places available, once I have confirmed dates with the ladies who have booked the other two spots. I would be happy to do a class in December too, if I have any interest. I live in Woodend, about an hours drive from Melbourne, so anyone from interstate may prefer to attend the Tutus That Dance Seminar in Melbourne in March. I will also be teaching there, and of course there will be classes on offer on traditional tutu making as well. Here are a few photos of what has been achieved by past students in my class.

A big thanks to my customers!

I have just added some photos of some of my tutus in action, in the gallery below all the posts. I would like to say a big thank you to the mums who send me photos, let me know how their daughters do, how their tutus look on stage, and any nice remarks. A lot of my tutus are made for girls i never meet, so I REALLY appreciate the feedback.
