Machine Sewing Workshop for Beginners



Join sewing instructor Brandy Godsil for a workshop built for beginners.

Never touched a sewing machine before? Made some masks and looking for a new challenge? This workshop is for you! Brandy will teach you the basics of setting up your machine, how to read and adjust all those dials, and how to tell if your machine is sewing properly. Then, you'll move on to learn different types of stitches and stitching techniques that are applicable to garments, accessories, home goods, and more. Students can bring their own machine (in good working order), or use one of our classroom sewing machines.

Supplies Needed:

  • You will need 1 spool of sewing thread (black, or another dark color), and 1/2 yard of cotton muslin. Choose the Class + Materials option to purchase a supply kit from Craft Habit at 20% off, or bring your own to class.

Class Policies & COVID procedures:

For the remainder of 2020, classes will be held outdoors, on our covered patio. Please dress appropriately for the weather!

Face masks that cover the nose and mouth must be worn by students, instructors, and staff at all times, indoors and outdoors, while on Craft Habit property.

All students will be provided with an individual worktable and set of tools for class 

This class requires a minimum of 4 students enrolled, with a maximum of 6. Craft Habit will notify students at least 24 hours in advance if a class is cancelled due to low enrollment. Students will be fully refunded for any classes cancelled due to low enrollment.

Food and most beverages are not allowed during classes, due to safety concerns. You are welcome to bring water in a container that will not spill if knocked over. 

Class registrations are not refundable. If you cannot attend, you may find another person to take your place in a class. Please let us know their name in advance of the class starting.

Classes cancelled by Craft Habit WILL be refunded. We will do our best to reschedule classes, and we will refund class registration fees for any classes that we have to cancel for any reason.

To respect our teachers’ time, please arrive 5 minutes before scheduled class time unless advised otherwise. Late arrivals may miss important information and may not be able to catch up to the class. We cannot issue refunds for late arrivals. Please shop for your class materials in advance!
