Class Experience

Students will need to have access to a working sewing machine for this class. The instructor will be using an older version of this machine: 
Students are responsible for knowing how to turn on, and thread their spacific machine prior to beginning class. If you need help with these steps often craft store employees (who you can meet with personally) and/or youtube videos are of great assistance. Please let the instructor know prior to class if you are still struggling and we will find a way to help.
We will be using sewing machines and irons. An adult must be in the household and available during class time in case of emergencies!
