Start Sewing - Beginner Workshop


Sometimes its hard to start. Perhaps someone gave you a machine and you don’t know how to use is. perhaps you have used it but ran into a problem you don’t know how to fix… This is a great 2.5 hour workshop for anyone who wants to take that first step and begin their sewing journey.

In this workshop you will learn how to thread, operate, and trouble shoot a sewing machine. You’ll gain confidence with the machine through plenty of sewing practice to get you comfortable. You’ll also learn tips and tricks for sewing strait and even, and try out some simple seam types. Whether you’re interested in making your own clothes, or home goods, or bags, this is the prefect first step.

No previous sewing experience required. All materials and machines provided

 “If you want to be fussy and perfect, that’s great. If you want to just get through it and prove to yourself you can make something with your own hands, I’m down with that too. And if you want to ask a million questions, I applaud your thirst for knowledge and will happily answer them.”
