Learn to Sew!

Did you just get your first sewing machine?  Not sure where to start?  Then join Grace as she shows brand new sewing enthusiasts how to set up their first sewing machine, tackle stitching, trouble shoot common and self-fixing sewing machine challenges, and make your first projects!

Grace will be guiding students through two projects: A stitch book and a pin-cushion (an essential in the sewing room!).  While working on these projects, students will get to know their sewing machines, gain confidence in sewing.  Parts of the sewing machine will be reviewed, and proper threading will be emphasized. This class will set up new-to-sewing folks to tackle future classes like Learn to Quilt and other classes we offer!

This is a two-day workshop style class.  Day one, students will focus on their sewing machine, threading, and sewing "pages" for their stitch book.  Students will finish their projects between class, before Day 2.  Day 2, students will learn how to follow a sewing pattern for the pin cushion.  


Sewing Machine, and please also bring ALL feet and accoutrements that were original to your machine.  (Machine should be a 
modern-ish machine.  Please no antique or vintage machines that are only capable of less than the basic stitches).  Machines should be in good working order.

You must bring your machine's USER MANUAL. 

Basic sewing kit (scissors, extra sewing machine needles, measuring tools, sewing pins/clips, seam ripper, etc)

Thread - recommended: Mettler Silk Finish cotton, 50 weight.  We will explore threads during the class, so we will be looking at thread options and weights.

Sewing machine needles - Microtex, size 80/12

Cutting tools - Rotary cutter with sharp blade and a straight edge (quilting ruler), scissors, cutting mat

1/2 yard of SOLID color fabric (thread should be a contrasting color from the fabric you choose)

(Additional fabrics and/or kit for the pin cushion will be reviewed in class; just know you will need more fabric, not a lot, for the second project not in this supply list)
