Get to Know Your Sewing Machine


Adult Enrichment / Fine Arts & Crafts -
Fall 2021

Unleash your inner seamstress! Whether you have no experience or just need a refresher, in just three evenings you’ll learn what you need to get sewing. Review your machine’s parts and functions, learn to change a bobbin, thread the machine, decipher stitch selections, and use the buttonhole function. After some practice and to boost your confidence, undertake a small project such as a mini bag. Please note: Bring your sewing machine in good working order along with your machine’s instruction manual, if you have it. A materials list will be emailed once the class has reached minimum enrollment.
