What you'll learn in this sewing machine class:

This seminar is the first in a series of how to sew from the ground up. It is not project based, but knowledge based. 

Session One Includes:

  • How to thread and wind a bobbin for your machine 
  • Thread tension and adjustments 
  • How to choose the proper thread and needle for your project 
  • Trouble shooting and maintenance 
  • Why you got so many feet when you bought your machine and what they are for 
  • Various machine stitches and why one would use one over the other 
  • Necessary and helpful tools 
  • An introduction to fabrics/ what to look for and how to prepare Fabric samples for sewing and learning different fabrics are included with each session. 


Fabric preparation basics will be taught. (This will also be reiterated in following sessions also.) 


What to Bring:

  • Your sewing machine if you have one, or if you want to learn on one of the industrial machines at the studio that is available also. If you do not own a sewing machine and are waiting to purchase one until you have a little more knowledge, there will also be a few homeowner machines to learn on provided for your use during class. 
  • If you have tools and notions, please bring them. 
  • Do bring your manual and thread and bobbin.

Each session builds on the previous session, but one is not required to take all sessions. Come for what you want to learn. The goal is to get you comfortable with sewing basics from the ground up so you can be confident in your sewing endeavors, whether designing with a knowledge of construction techniques, or simply comfortable making your own clothes, or anything in between.
