Sewing Machine Savvy-Learn to use your sewing machine

While we could teach you all about how to use a sewing machine in general it would make more sense to teach you how to use your machine better. Our very own Rebecca will guide you through the basics. We will reinforce the lessons by making a sewing machine cover during the class. Limited to six participants.

Skills to be learned:
- How to thread your machine
- How to insert the needle and bobbin
- How to change out the feet
- How to adjust thread tension
- How to wind the bobbin

Materials required by student:
Home sewing machine with power cord, needle, scissors, standard foot and an empty bobbin.

Fabric will be provided by the teacher.

    This was a fun class, Thanks Rebecca. Not only did I learn how to use "my" sewing machine but I learned how to do a layout and pinning of the material to sew up simple patterns, there were a lot of tip and tricks I learned. For people who use sewing machines this may sound simple and common sense but to someone that has never used one it was great, because without this class I would never attempted to use the machine.

    Hey Michelle, so sorry to hear your husband is unwell. I plan to repeat this class in about a month. I think we have one person on the wait list who can come. Can you make sure to update your rsvp so the meetup lets him register? I hope to see you in the next class.

    I am SO sorry, I have to cancel coming today.My husband has had a 101 fever for 2 days now and is finally ready to go to the ER. I won't ask for a refund, I wish I'd known sooner I wouldn't be able to go.Will you be teaching this class again in the near future?I hope this is enough notice for anyone else that ,might want my spot.Thank you :D

    Hey Mark, it is best to learn on your own machine if you have one. They are pretty unique in how they get threaded. If you don't have a machine, you can borrow one from the shop. There are 2 usually available, I think only one is spoken for in this session.
