Course Details

Fantastic learning environment

Saadiyah will make you feel at ease working with patterns and a sewing machine. Her knowledge and skills are impeccable and she teaches you in the calmest of ways. She is patient, kind and the sweetest human will you will ever meet. I am confident in my ability to sew because of her.
Shaheedah Motalib – Biokineticist

I can sew like a pro!

When I started the basic course, I knew nothing about pattern making. I didn’t know how to place my fabric for cutting or how to thread a machine. I have completed the basic course with Saadiyah and I’m proud to say that I can cut and sew a trouser, dress and skirt. I recently even sewed a bridesmaids dress for a wedding!
Anisa Bhana – Lancet Laboratory Superior

Best hands-on course

The course conducted by Sew Like a Pro was a wonderful experience. Lessons were conducted according to oneself and was not rushed. Saadiyah was hands on and always helped whenever I needed assistance.
Aqeela Hassem – Educator

Excellent sewing course

I learnt everything about sewing from Saadiyah. I knew absolutely nothing about sewing when I started the course. Thanks to a great teacher, I can now sew with confidence.
