The decision to start The Lowveld Sewing academy wasn’t a difficult one for Surette. Sewing is in her blood and teaching and sharing her skill was a calling.
Surette is a natural teacher and it’s amazing to see her interact with her students. She has a personal connection with each student and adapts her way of explaining tasks to their level of understanding. The most beautiful thing about Surette is her patience, and I think that is her secret to running this school.
Currently there is about 50 students enrolled at The Lowveld Sewing Acacdemy. Surette has two amazing right hand woman who also teach with her. Between these three ladies you can sew with confidence and know that one of them is standing next to you, talking you through the process.
In the back of this little school you will find a whole variety of sewing machines waiting to be serviced or repaired. Even though they are Elna stockist, their technicians are qualified to repair ANY sewing machine.
