Own a sewing machine but 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 Sewing 101 class and learn all the basics. We’ll discuss the parts of a machine, proper names for parts, how to wind a bobbin, thread your machine and the basic stitches.

Finally, we’ll use our new found skills to create a variety of basic sewing projects, like a cozy throw, simple tote or stuffed creature.

Bring your sewing machine*, manual, and all the accessories, i.e. pedal, power cord, etc. We’ll provide machines for those who haven’t ventured that far yet. If you have your own sewing kit, feel free to bring along!

*We encourage you to bring your own machine because that is the best way to learn and be able to sew at home! If you do not have a machine, there are a few at the studio to use. Please make sure your machine is tuned up before class. Intown Quilters offers these services at a reasonable cost.
Materials Required:
-Sewing machine in good working order with manual (if you have it)
-Spools of thread, bobbins for your machine, seam ripper
