Instructor: Valerie Davis
Do you own a sewing machine that you have no idea how to use or are you in the market for a machine but don’t know which one you’d like to buy? Take our introduction to your sewing machine class to learn all about your machine! We’ll discuss all of the parts of a machine, proper names of each part, how to wind a bobbin and thread your machine, and all of the basic stitches. We’ll make a super cute upcycled market tote bag with all of the new skills you’ve learned.

Bring your machine if you have one, the manual, and all the parts that came with your machine. We will provide machines for those who haven’t ventured that far yet.

Materials Required:
A t-shirt or any jersey material garment. Check your local thrift store or bring something you want to upcycle!

About Rachel Herzog:
With a love for all things old and vintage, Rachel hunts thrift stores to find discarded cashmere and wool sweaters to create one-of-a-kind creations., Using the felting process, she taps in to her sewing talents to create unique pieces adorned by old buttons and keys. As a result, her company, Tickleworm came to life. From neck wraps and fingerless gloves to zippered pouches and bags, each piece is lovingly crafted and unique. Her little “Felties” adorn many little girls heads!
