Intro to Machine Sewing


Learn everything you need to know to safely and confidently use a sewing machine in this introductory class. All materials will be provided to make a simple project. No experience or machine necessary, use one of our 8 in-house Brother sewing machines. All principles learned in class will apply to any make/model machine that you may have at home. Completion of this class qualifies you to sign up and attend any Stitchery sewing class on the schedule.


Don't have the time for a 3 hour class to make an entire project when you just want to learn a specific skill?

Quick skills monthly classes are just the thing! 

In 60 minutes, a sewing skill will be explained and demonstrated. You will have time to practice the skill several times with an expert standing by to help and answer questions. Go home with a Stitchery handout, your class examples, and a newly-honed sewing skill.
