As we have new sewing machines and overlockers at Upcycle Newcastle, we’re offering free 2 hour lessons to our financial members to ensure that people are confident when using them and able to trouble-shoot problems, and that the machines are well looked after. These will be 2 hour classes for each (sewing machines and overlockers), limited to 5 participants in each group. To book into a lesson, please email ( or ring Cathy on 0411 434 013.
