Intro to Sewing Machine Class

We'll cover (in varying detail):
- Parts of the machine
- Threading
- Basic settings + stitch types (length, straight v. zig-zag)
- Machine operation

Then a little practice sewing, then - Basic sewing techniques (cutting, pinning, fabric placement, pressing, seam allowance, clipping curves + corners)

- A small project TBD - most likely a simple coaster or more complex wallet pattern, depending on how people are feeling.

Price is $20 + $5 materials fee.  There are only 4 machines, but if additional people would like to attend we can work something out.

    The class was exceptional. Not only was I able to make something on the sewing machine, but I feel extremely confident in my ability to use it on my own.
