Ripley Sewing Learning Centre is a family-owned initiative. We hold the safety of our team members, fellow aficionados and community as our top priority. This core value, which guides us every day, is especially invaluable now as we all begin to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19).  

In light of the above we have chosen to be proactive and postponed our small group activities through to the end of March. We will continue to assess the situation on a weekly basis. At this time we are encouraging more frequent utilisation of social media forums such as Ripley Sewing Enthusiasts and TESS F/B groups.

With accessing notions, project materials, fabrics, individual tutoring as well as Pfaff sewing and embroidery machines – sales, repairs and servicing- Ripley Sewing Learning Centre will continue to be open during our regular hours to meet your creative and inspiration needs.

We understand that you may not feel comfortable to drop in personally during this time.  RSLC will always respect and support your decision to self-isolate if required. In these cases we will endeavour to fulfil your order and arrange appropriate means of delivery (e.g. “throwing them out our car window as we pass by” or via Australia Post).  

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us via email (, Blog ( or mobile (0419 948 452)
