Do you have a sewing machine in your closet, but have never used it? Or you want to sew, but the last time you stitched anything up was in Home Ec class in 8th grade? If you are looking for a low­ commitment class to get acquainted with your machine (or reacquainted with the art of sewing), this is the one for you!

In this 3­ hour session, you will learn how to thread your machine and wind a bobbin, sew a simple seam, and hem edges. You will make either a pillowcase, tote bag, or drawstring pouch. From this start you’ll have a foundation for moving on to all kinds of sewing projects, and your machine may just become your very BEST friend!

Supplies to bring: your sewing machine, 1/2 yard or more fabric(any basic woven, printed or solid cottons, denim or twill, etc.), thread to match, sharp fabric ­cutting scissors, pins and pincushion, seam ripper, tailor’s chalk/wax, ruler (Optional: 1 yard ribbon for handles or drawstring, or trims for decoration)

Sustenance: light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please bring a lunch.
