Sewing 101: How to Use a Sewing Machine

In this class you will learn the basics of how to use a sewing machine and what the accessories that came with it are for. Those skills will then be put into use to make both an envelope and a zipper pillow. We will provide sewing machines and basic sewing supplies for you to use. If you have a sewing machine lurking at home that you want to learn how to use, please make sure it is in working order before class and bring your manual.

All our sewing machines are of the highest quality, generously supplied by Quality Sewing! Additionally, we provide complimentary workshops on machine maintenance throughout the year, so be sure to stay tuned for upcoming dates!

Instructor: Erin Hubner
Instructor Bio: Erin learned to sew as a kid and was always crafty but didn't really get fully into sewing until after college. After making a few rather involved Halloween costumes she realized she could make clothes to wear every day, not just at the end of October. Eventually this led to her going back to school for fashion design and construction and teaching classes for over 6 years. Her main focus may be garment sewing, but she has also worked on accessories, home decor and quilting. Basically, if it involves fabric, thread, yarn, or other similar craft supplies she probably does it on a semi regular basis. Except projects involving hot glue, she does try to stay away from those.
