    Hi Katherine,
    I am a graphic designer and I just wonder if you know where in HK i can find classes that teaches dressmaking? I have no experience in sewing but i really would like to learn how to make patterns etc. Or maybe you are giving some lessons?

      Hi Kathleen, Thank for the message.

      Since I wasn’t trained in Hong Kong, I’m not too sure where you can find dressmaking classes here. I’d say you might be able to find some certified courses at IVE or 明愛. But I’m not sure if that’s what you’re looking for.

      I have never given out lesson before, but I’m sure I can teach you what you want to make, just don’t expect a formal lesson from me. The other thing would be I don’t have a proper cutting table… If you’re interested, you may email me at kath916@hotmail.com. Maybe we can work something out.

      katharine 🙂

    Hi Katharine,

    I love your site. I just found it during surfing about sewing materials in HK. The info you wrote is sooo helpful! Thank you so much for that. Oh, if ever i wanted to learn more about dressmaking could i ask you to teach me? If so, how much would you charge me? No worries about formal lesson.. i am cool with anything as long as im learning. : )
    @Kahtleen: Hi there, there is a school for dressmaking course in Mongkok where i go (right now i stop coz i am too busy moving to a new apt but i will be back on september) Pls go to this site ITS Tutorial School. com. There you will find all the info about dressmaking course. Hope to meet you in school one day!
