Never used a sewing machine before or maybe it’s been years since your Home Economics/FACs class but you want to use a sewing machine before deciding on committing to longer classes. After our 3 hour class, you’ll learn how to thread it and sew a straight line. We will then teach techniques for machine handling that be frustrating to figure out on your own. During the process of getting comfortable with the sewing machine, you will also create a drawstring bag to prove you can sew. This is class is for 16 yrs and older.
The skills you’ll learn
- How to operate a sewing machine and adjust the controls
- Thread it correctly
- Sew straight lines and curves
- Sew simple, accurate seam allowances
- Finish seam edges
You have now taken the first steps in the adventure of creating your own crafts and eventually, clothing. There won’t be time to teach specific sewing techniques, which is covered more in-depth in the self-paced: Intro to Sewing, Sewing and Pattern Fundamentals classes. However, you will be ready to work with your own machine and start exploring the new possibilities ahead in your new world of sewing
Just bring yourself and excitement to learn something new. Supplies are included in the class fee.
