In this two and a half-hour beginner class you will learn all the basics of a sewing machine. You may bring your own machine or use one of ours if you haven't purchased one and are thinking you may want to. By the end of class you will have made a standard size bed pillowcase.


Skills learned:


• wind a bobbin

• thread the machine

• information about stitch length and tension

• how and when to change a needle

• how and when to change a foot

• general care for the machine

• practice forward and reverse straight stitching as well as zigzag stitching


Supplies are additional and can be purchased anytime before class. Allow extra time before class if you decide to purchase them on the same day. Materials needed include:


1 yard cotton fabric - $9 and up* (we recommend quilting cotton or poplin)

1 spool coordinating thread - $2.50



No previous sewing experience is necessary. If you are bringing your own machine, please make sure it has been recently serviced and has a new needle.
