Sewing Level 1 - Get to Know Your Sewing Machine

Do you have a sewing machine that you're not sure how to make it work? This class is for you! Bring in your machine and manual, and learn to set up & thread the machine, change the needle, wind a bobbin, stitch with a seam allowance, backstitch, change machine settings, and troubleshoot. Bring your own sewing machine, machine manual, power cord, foot pedal, and 2 empty bobbins that fit your machine.

IMPORTANT: Before registering for this class, make sure your machine turns on when plugged in, and that the needle moves when you press the foot pedal. 

Supplies Needed:

  • Your sewing machine!
  • Your sewing machine manual. If you don't have a paper copy, you can often find a PDF version online if you search by the make & model of your machine. Electronic copies are fine if you download to a phone or tablet.
  • A spool of thread, and an empty bobbin compatible with your machine.
