Class Descriptions

SCA POWER TOOL: Sewing 101

Daegmar Valdemarsdottier
Heather Williamson

Join us for a review of the basics of the sewing machine. What the heck it is, (and isn’t), how to thread it, wind a spool, needles vs pins, types of thread vs types of fabric, and all the tools you need to know. Finally, we are going to use the machine to practice sewing, learn one major sewing technique and create a easy project. If you are thinking about purchasing a sewing machine ‘cause you need garb and want to take a test drive first, this class is for you. If you need a OMG moment with a sewing machine, this class is for you. Total newbies or need to review the basics, welcome!
