Make Friends with Your Sewing Machine

Do you really want to sew but your machine scares you a little? Make friends with it! We will practice winding a bobbin, threading your machine and utilizing some of the different stitches your machine can do. This class will leave you feeling more confident and ready to sew some of those great projects you've been hoping to make!
Materials: Your sewing machine with owner's manual, thread, bobbins, scrap material, sewing/fabric scissors. NOTE: Please be sure your machine is in good working condition. If it has been in storage for a while, take it to be serviced before class.
