Instructor: Rachel Herzog
Own a sewing machine and have no idea how to use it? Maybe you’ve thought about buying a machine for your crafty kid but not sure they’ll like it? Take our intro to sewing class and get the basics down. We’ll discuss all the parts of a machine, proper names for parts, how to wind a bobbin, thread your machine and all the basic stitches.
Finally, we’ll use our new found skills to create a felt creature. Felt is versatile and easy to work with and great fun for beginner stitcher enthusiasts.
Bring your machine, manual, and all the accessories that came with your machine, i.e. pedal, power cord, etc. We’ll provide machines for those who haven’t ventured that far yet.
All materials supplied.
About Rachel Herzog
Rachel has a background in environmental science, but her creative side was always calling her. Maybe that’s why she took two ceramics courses as electives in college.
With a love for all things old and vintage, she hunts thrift stores to find discarded cashmere and wool sweaters to create one-of-a-kind creations such as neck wraps, fingerless gloves and zippered pouches. She ran her company, Tickleworm for many years until she found GDS where now she gets to use her left brain to manage all the finances while reveling in her love of DIY crafting and sewing.

Sometimes our classes won’t fill their minimum and we will need to cancel. Most likely it could be the day before, and we will contact you as soon as possible. A full refund will be applied if the studio has to cancel a class.
What happens if I need to cancel?
Class fees are non-refundable. There is a 48 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel within the 48 hours before the class, you will forfeit your fee. If you alert us 48 hours or more before your scheduled class, we will be glad to give credit for a future class. This credit must be used within 60 days of the cancellation date to prevent loss of the registration fee.
