Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: This class is for the beginner sewer or someone who wants to strengthen their basic skills.
Materials Included: There is a supply list for this class. You will need to purchase the project supplies prior to each class session.
Requirements: You will need to bring a machine to class that is in good working order and one that you are somewhat familiar with. We will learn the basic parts of the machine and what they do, however, this is NOT a machine guide class. You should already know how to thread the machine, wind a bobbin, insert the bobbin, change the presser feet, and change the needle. If you need an in-depth lesson on the use of your particular machine, please, contact the store to set up a private lesson prior to the start of this class. If you purchased your machine from us, these lessons are free! Please, make sure you have your supplies prior to arriving to class.
