Sewing Machine 101
What you'll learn
- You will learn all about the dials, buttons and accessories on your machine, gain confidence and learn to make a tote bag!
- No knowledge is required. You'll just need the sewing machine you would like to learn to use!
I hear from so many friends and acquaintances who have sewing machines but don’t know how to use them! If you fit in that category, you have an amazing tool at your disposal! in this course, I'll take you through all the dials, buttons, features and accessories. We'll wind the bobbin together and thread the needle to stitch through different settings and see how stitch width and length change the stitch. Then we'll make a tote bag to apply what you've learned. I can’t wait for you to take this course, conquer any fears you may have about your machine, and unleash your creative potential! Once you know the basics, it’s just a matter of practice.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone wanting to learn to sew or someone who is frustrated by their machine.
I’ve been sewing for 20+ years. I started tinkering with a machine in early high school, at which time I made my first quilt and my jr. homecoming dress. I went on to get a degree in Home Economics, work for Husqvarna Viking selling sewing machines, teach classes at a quilt shop, manage a Bridal Alterations room and run a sewing business from my home. I'd love to share what I’ve learned about sewing machines, dressmaking, wallet/bag-making and quilting with you! I want to take the fear out of sewing and guide you through each step in a way that instills confidence in your growing skill and your ability to conquer projects in the future. Let's get sewing!
