Frustrated with your home sewing machine skipping or breaking all the time? In this 3-hour course we will teach you the basics of how to approach and use an industrial sewing machine. Basics include threading the machine and bobbin, using different kinds of needles and presser feet, use of guides and attachments, practice of sewing on paper and fabric as well as techniques for sewing and approaching patterns. Enrollment is limited to ensure everyone receives personal attention. No prerequisite skills are required.
You are not required to bring any materials to take this course. We will be using our industrial single needle and serger sewing machine to teach you the ropes. Fabric will be provided to you.
