What you'll learn in this sewing machine class:

Does the thought of using a sewing machine for the first time intimidate you? Do you own a sewing machine and have no idea how to use it? Are you thinking of buying one, but have no idea where to start?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Sewing Machine Basics Class is for you!

Our Sewing Machine Basics Workshop covers:
  • How to thread the sewing machine
  • How to use the sewing machine
  • How to fill and load the bobbin
  • What stitch length & stitch width are why they matter
  • What sewing machine tension is and why it's important
  • How to sew your very first sewing project
If you own your own sewing machine and want to bring it to class, it must meet the following conditions: 
  • Must be a modern sewing machine that was manufactured with the last 10 years. 
  • Must be in working order.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows:

Cancellations made 3 or more days in advance will receive a full credit for a rescheduled date with this provider   

----

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):


You must sign up for a class either online, in person, or by telephone BEFORE a class to be guaranteed a spot. It's best to sign up at least a few days before the class to ensure your spot, as well as to help us properly plan for the class. Classes fill up frequently. You can always try dropping in on a class, but there may not be room for you in a class and in this case you will be turned away.

M Avery Designs reserves the right to cancel a class that does not have sufficient enrollment. If this happens to a class you are signed up for, you will be notified at least 24 hours before the class starts. You can choose to have the cost of the class refunded or to apply the balance of the class to your account to be used for a future class.

There are no monetary refunds for canceling any adult or children's class or private lesson.

Please let us know as soon as you can if for some reason you have to cancel or reschedule a private sewing lesson or group class. Group classes can be rescheduled only if there is a future occurrence of the class.

Due to the hands-on nature of all our classes & workshop, there is very limited space in all our classes! No shows and last minute cancelations (within 48 hour of the class) cannot reschedule. Here's what you can do: 

If there is another occurrence, you can email us the night before it happens. If that session is not already full, you can attend the next day. However, we will not reserve space for you in a second class, if you miss your first.

Getting into the building:
There are two entrances.

Entrance 1 (closest to studio) is on Monroe St. about halfway between 7th & 8th Street. Door is to the right of "Shaka Bowl" & to the left of "School of Rock. Walk to elevator, come to 3rd floor, make left and you can't miss the antique sewing machine in the hall. Suite E306.

Entrance 2 is on 8th street, just past the corner store. Elevator is a quick right after you come in door, come to 3rd floor, make left, make another left and walk to the end of the long hallway. You can't miss the antique sewing machine in the hall outside our door. Suite E306

Getting up to our studio taking stairs: If you'd like to avoid the elevators, enter the building using the door to the right of the Shaka Bowl Entrance on Monroe Street, about halfway between 7th & 8th streets. Walk in and you'll see a stair case. These will go up to second floor. Once on second floor head to the right and make your way to the south east corner of the building (closes to 7th street). You'll see another set of stairs. Take these up to the third floor, make a left out of the stair well and you'll see our studio at the end of the hall.

Sadly, there is no longer free parking any more. You must find street parking on the streets provided for visitor parking. Most of the streets require you to use the Park Mobile App. to pay for your parking.

There is a paid parking garage behind our building. Follow Jackson St. until you get to 7th, make a left and you'll see the parking garage entrance. We encourage our students to take public transportation, uber/lyft or walk to the studio.

I see no materials are needed for this class but will materials be provided to us in class to have something to make so we have something to work on/practice on while we are there? Ie; the beginners class in Manhattan provides material to make a pin cushion.

This was a great class as intro to using a sewing machine. By the end we'd made pin cushions and I felt very confident to use my machine at home and thread the machine. Nancy was a great teacher!

Reviewed by Nyoka G. on 5/30/2019
I have taken sewing classes before where I went to class and used their machines, then I went home and was intimidated by my own machine being different. By taking my machine to this class and really learning it, I am now so confident that I have started a project immediately at home. The instructor's pace was great for beginner level. Her information was clearly understood and her advanced preparation made the process very organized. Thank you.
