Fast Start on the Sewing Machine
Learn what it’s like to use a sewing machine before investing in one. In 3 hours you’ll learn how to thread it up and sew a straight line. We will then teach secrets about handling the machine that normally takes forever to figure out on your own. And in the process of getting comfortable with the sewing machine, you will make a large drawstring bag to show for the effort!
This Fast Start class is designed to take the mystery out of the sewing machine and get you up and sewing fast.
In just one class you’ll learn how to:
Operate a sewing machine and thread it correctly
Sew straight lines
Construct the basic seam allowances
Topstitch like an expert
By the end of class, you’ll have an attractive drawstring tote bag to prove you know how to sew!
This class is designed to start you out right on your way to becoming a sewing genius, or at least a fanatic, which is more fun. You’ll come away knowing the basic principles of threading the machine, working the controls, selecting stitches, sewing straight lines and curves and sewing basic seams. There won’t be time to teach specific sewing techniques – that’s covered in our Sewing Basics I and II classes – but you will be ready to work with your own machine and start developing your new sewing skills.
There’s no need to bring anything to class. Supplies are included in the class fee. Bring a friend or two . . . It’s the perfect Girls’ Night Out activity!
