It’s true that most sewing machine stores will gladly guide you through these first steps after purchasing a machine, but what happens if you are beginning to sew with a hand-me-down? Or what if you’ve purchased your first sewing machine online or from a big-box store? What then?
Well I’ll tell you what, bring that machine on in to the Sewing Machine Basics class and learn with me! Become well versed in sewing machine terms like feed dogs, presser foot, and throat plate. Learn the right way to wind and insert a bobbin, and discover the true meaning of thread tension. Stitch up your own pillowcase while discovering the details of straight and zig-zag stitching. And, finally, transform into a technician to tune-up your machine and keep it purring like a kitten. Once you have a handle on the basics you can tackle any simple sewing project!
