Introducing your sewing machine!!

This introductory class will set you on your successful course of sewing bliss.

In this 2-part class series you will get to know your machine, it’s parts, basic stitches, troubleshooting….and generally conquer the fear of the sewing machine.

In our last class session you will put what you learned to use; you will create a pin cushion!

Bring your questions, your own sewing machine (and it’s accessories), and the basic sewing kit (see emailed list, or pick up a printed kit list in the Ohlendorf, atelier studio located inside the Venue).

Pin cushion fabrics will be provided at the second class session
