Sewing 101: Meet Your Machine
Time & Location
About the Event
The first step in learning how to sew is getting comfortable with your sewing machine and understanding how it works. Even if you don't have the same machine I'm using, the basic parts and principals are the same.
In this class we're going to explore the parts of our machine, learn how to thread needles, change needles, wind bobbins, adjust thread tension and sew our first few stitches!
I know no one really wants to read an entire sewing machine manual, but it's definitely a good idea to look through the one that came with your machine and read about the more important features, like how to thread your specific machine, wind your bobbin, etc.
If you have an old machine without a manual, you can usually find it online.
Please bring your sewing machine manual to class!
Here's what you should bring to class:
- Working Sewing machine, if you have it. If not ETGC has one to borrow.
- Needles for your machine
This class is free to ETGC members / $5.00 for non-members.
