Learn To Sew

If you have never ever touched a sewing machine (or it's been years since you've sewn something) this is the perfect workshop series to develop basic sewing machine skills and get you started on your sewing journey. In this 3 class series, we begin with the fundamentals from threading a machine, loading a bobbin, sewing a straight stitch, and then work through three exciting projects, reinforcing and cementing the skills you learned while introducing a few new techniques including zigzag stitch and basic zipper installation. Leave this series armed with a variety of new sewing skills and the  confidence to tackle your next sewing project!
