is a 2 hour workshop to familiarize yourself with either your personal sewing machine, or ours. We’ll introduce you to the machine, including turning it on, threading it, learning the basic stitches and functions, and caring for it. You will leave this session feeling good about your beginner skills, a handy packet of information to use at home and a starter project for your first sewing class with us. Even if you aren’t taking a sewing class with us, this is a great opportunity to learn a few basics. If you are bringing your own sewing machine- bring all the pieces and the manual (if you can find it!). If you don’t own a machine, come get to know our machines. This workshop also includes taking your measurements, picking appropriate patterns and how to select fabrics and notions. $30 for one session, offered Wednesday, June 17th 6-8 pm OR Saturday, June 20th 10-12 noon.sewing pic

One thought on “Job Posting, Workshops + Picture of the Triplets!

  1. Summer Sundays — I would LOVE to see a session on how to knit socks two at a time — not the whole sock construction thing which would take too much time, but rather a workshop on two at a time for people already comfortable with making socks one at a time. Thanks!
