For your convenience, we are instituting an Online Registration and Payment system. We hope you will find it easy to use and encourage you to try it out. Here are the basics.
See you in class!Go to Workshops
On several of our course descriptions, you will see this notice: "FOR THOSE WHO PURCHASED MACHINE AT THE OAKVILLE SEWING CENTRE. This workshop is FREE to anyone having purchased their new sewing machine at the Oakville Sewing Centre in the past year. A $25 refundable deposit is required to hold your spot upon registration, which will be refunded when you attend the class."(Purchases made on Black Friday do not qualify for free course.)
If you are one of these lucky people, please call the store to make your Reservations rather than using the Online Payment System. This will insure that you are not overcharged for the course. For other courses, go ahead and use the System.

We always welcome donations of your previously loved machines. Along with a bunch of supporters and facilitators, we manage to donate used machines to women who can not afford them, but make excellent use of them. These projects can be life altering, thanks to your generosity.
This is the latest graduating sewing class from Colorada Dominican Republic. Each graduate was awarded a sewing machine to take home. You may even see your machine in these pictures. It was a very exciting day for these ladies. Thanks once again to those who so generously donated to this cause.
Zen Chic is coming on May 20 – 22, 2014
We are thrilled to announce that Brigitte Heitland, owner and founder of Zen Chic Quilting Patterns and Fabrics , is making her very first trip to Canada to visit the Oakville Sewing Centre. Brigitte is on the leading edge of "The Modern Quilt" and has an extensive repertoire of expertise, patterns and fabrics surrounding the new look in quilting.
On the evening of May 20, she will be sharing her quilts in an exclusive trunk show. It is wonderful to see original creations, that we normally can only see on a website. The colour combinations are novel, the machine quilting "out of the box" and exquisite.
On May 21 and 22, she will be conducting a hands-on workshop surrounding colour theory, fabric selection and the construction of one of her latest quilt, Quiet Haven.
Fee: $35 plus HST for the Trunk Show, Tuesday, May 20, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
2 Day Hands-on Workshop - $135 plus HST for Discount Card Members, $165 plus HST for Non-Discount Card Members. (Discount Card gives you 15% off all fabric and pattern purchases for 12 months)
Wednesday, May 21 and Thursday , May 22, 10:00 – 4:00 p.m. ONLY 2 SPACES remain for the hands-on workshop. Registration Fees for this event are non-refundable.
Call 905 844-2782 to register. You cannot register online for this event.Visit the Zen Chic Website for more information about Brigitte Heitland’s Art
While the final project is a surprise, we can tell you that it is beautiful and chock full of challenging quilting techniques.
We will be doing the full size bed quilt only during this 8 Block of the Month project, beginning January 29, 2014.
We will meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. During each class you will receive your monthly quilt instructions and a demonstration on the techniques for that month. We will not meet in July or August, but you will receive 2 months of patterns in June for your “summer holiday homework”.
The 8th session will be a bonus session to discuss quilting techniques.
Fee: $150 plus HST for 8 classes and includes $75 voucher for course materials.
We consider it polite and ethical to respectfully request you to purchase fabrics and supplies from theOakville Sewing Centre when registered for one of our workshops (unless specified otherwise). We thank you for your courtesy which supports our ability to continue a costly education program.
Your sewing equipment requires TLC just like an other machine. It should be cleaned (and oiled, depending on the machine) on a regular basis. Always use good quality thread, needles, and make sure that you are using the bobbins that were designed for your machine. This all sounds very elementary, but these tips will assist in the quality of your sewing experience. However, periodically, your machine will need the assistant of a sewing technician, for either a repair or a routine tune up.
Our factory trained technician comes to our store once a week, when the store is closed. All machines must be received no later than noon on Saturday of any week to be repaired that week. If no parts or extraordinary repairs are required, your machine will be ready for pick up the following Tuesday morning when the store opens at 10:00 a.m.
Our minimum bench charge is $50 for any repairs.
Machine assessment and estimates are $40- which can be used toward the labour charge if you decide to proceed with the repair.
Your best buy might be at your local fabric store which offers specials and discounts every day.
Something to ponder!!
