Question from Zulma P.
Hi...I'm in California and interested in taking the class on the 12th, but I may not be able to receive the materials on time - so that's my first question. Also - I have a Jenome 2212, sewing machine. Is it comparable to the Janome Sewist 500 you'll be using for the class. Do I have to have that sewing machine in order to learn? Thank You, Z

Question from S. Nina G.
1. I have a very old sewing machine (circa 1960’s) that I have no idea how to use. Can the skills taught in this online class be used on such an old machine? 2. Also, do we use our own machine at home during this online class, or is this class merely a demo that we’re supposed to watch & apply to sewing on our home machine after class? Thanks!

Question from stanley h.
Hi. I m a 60+ adult never operate a showing machine before. Like to learn some basics to see a mask. Is this just a 2 hrs class. Or can I attend the class repeatedly if I can't get it ..I don't know whether I might have difficulty get all the basics in one "2" hr class.
Answer from Megan C.
Usually, it's a one time class that you'd have to pay for again if you wanted to repeat. Most of the virtual classes I've taken provide you with a powerpoint to keep for reference, though.

Question from Daisy P.
Are we able to bring our own fabric? Saw the photo from below, but is that the only fabric we can choose from?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Daisy! For this class, the school provides materials for the project. All tote bags are made from denim. The student is welcome to provide their own fabric, but it needs to be cut and prepared before they arrive, and they recommend staying away from anything shiny, slippery, sheer, sequined, etc. The dimensions of the cut piece of fabric are 14"x36".

Question from Anusheh H.
Hi. I have an 8-year-old who has little experience with a sewing machine already. Would it be alright if she joined for the course?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Generally, this class is geared toward adults, but they do teach children as well. They would recommend a private lesson instead. Private lessons are $60/hour, and they can teach the same skills and project as the Sewing Machine Basics Workshop, or they can gear the lesson to something more specific if she has another project in mind. You can check the private class here: https://coursehorse.com/nyc/classes/art/textile/sewing/sewing-machine/sewing-machine-basics-private-
