Open Day at The Strawberry Thief

Good news Perth friends! We are going to be hosting afternoon Sit and Stitch sessions on Saturdays from 12.30-3.30pm at the Strawberry Thief warehouse!

Our aim is to create a space where people can come and bring their current sewing project along, sit and stitch while having fun and also access the knowledge and advice of other experienced stitchers.

We will also be running classes, bringing in teachers to share with you their specialised skills and techniques. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in the creative Perth sewing scene, learn new skills and meet like minded people!

♥ Saturday 9th of September is our first Open Day 

For our very first open day, Robyn will be running her very popular Hexie EPP class in the morning. The class will run from 10 – 12, with students invited to remain afterwards for the general Sit and Stitch.

We will then be open to the public from 12.30pm – 3.30pm. 


10am – 12pm Hexie Class 
12.30pm – 3.30pm  Sit and Stitch 

♥ Afternoon Sit and Stitch – Cost $15
Sit amongst like minded stitchers, ask advice and share stories and wisdom. Bring what you are working on or a new project to start! Tea/Coffee and biscuits provided, please feel free to bring a plate of nibblies to share.

♥ Hexie Masterclass – Cost $100
Includes Hexie Starter Kit, Lunch and Afternoon Sit and Stitch

Under Robyn’s guidance, learn how to construct a hexie flower using English Paper Piecing techniques. You will receive a beautiful kit with everything that you need to begin your hexie journey/addiction – Aurifil thread, scissors, glue-pen with refill and enough pre-cut Liberty fabric hexies and papers to complete 5 flowers.

The class will run from 10am until 12pm. Participants are then provided with a light lunch and invited to stay and take part in the afternoon Sit and Stitch, which runs until 3.30pm.

We have limited spaces so bookings are essential. Please call (0400 933 902) or email us to book your place.

The Strawberry Thief HQ is part of a factory complex, please park outside the gate and we will let you in!

    Would love to join your Saturday afternoon club, is it still going in 2019. I am currently working on a hexagon piece. My local quilt shop is Southland Sewing Centre (Helen).

      Hi Helen
      I am doing a lot of travel this year, so will not be holding regular Sit and Stitches:( Please sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date with all our announcements and events.
