Hi, my name is Sherine Haines and I owned a retail store for just over 23 years. Besides selling fabric, haberdashery, software & machines, I also taught Sewing, Craft, Décor and Digitizing courses.
My passion is being creative and teaching, and as a result of many of my customers having moved away from the area (even to different countries), and then not being able to attend my face-to-face classes – the customers requested that I mail them course information. So………that is how this website was initially born!
The website has since evolved to include digital courses and training videos related to sewing and crafting that are downloadable and available to all – no matter which country they live in.
I also sell select physical products, which I can only ship within South Africa.
Now……you may never have attended any of my classes before, or bought any physical product from me, but please browse through the Courses & Training Videos tabs on this website and try your hand at some of them. The instructions are really easy to follow (Step-by-Step) and I am sure that you will be so pleased to have joined the wonderful world of Sewing & Crafting.

Here are a few testimonials from satisfied customers. (They can be verified….) Feel free to add your own testimonial via the TESTIMONIAL tab above after your engagement with me too.
