This class works best as a private or booked with a friend! Mornings work for me as I have to open the shop at noon, so feel free to request a date. Please request dates with one week warning. Class Level: Beginner Age Requirements: 12 and older Average Class Size: 4-6 Don't be afraid of your sewing machine! Always wanted to learn how to sew, but a bit intimidated? Here's were to start! In this 2 hour class you will learn how to thread a sewing machine, bobbin and sew straight seams, and zig zag. Students will get an overview of how the machine works, basic care and stitching. At the end of class students will have made a tote bag! If there's time, we can sneak some decorating in! Feel free to bring in or suggest a direction you would like to take the class in. I work with you to create the best learning experience.
