Sewing Machine Basics
Sat February 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm| $55.00
In this class, we will learn how to use a sewing machine by making a square pillow with nine-patch design! We’ll learn how to thread the machine and bobbin, stitch and backstitch. This is a great class for beginners and for people who wonder if they could pull that machine out of the closet and make it sing again.
The pillow we’ll create is 12-inches wide and tall and will give us an opportunity to learn to sew a quarter inch seam, match fabric intersections and turn fabric while sewing.
You will leave the class with basic sewing machine knowledge and a finished, stuffed pillow!
We will provide you with a sewing machine and fiber fill. If you like the fabric in the photo, we will supply this – just choose the ‘with fabric’ option when checking out. If you would like to bring your own fabric, please bring the following in 100% cotton fabric:
(1) 12-1/2” square of fabric (for back of pillow)
(2) 6-1/2” squares of fabric in one color or pattern
(2) 6-1/2” squares of fabric in a second color or pattern
Thread to match or contrast with your fabric – your choice – have fun!
If you bring uncut fabric, we have fabric scissors and cutting rulers you can use to cut your fabric to size. We’ll supply snips or scissors for you to cut your thread.
