Event Details

Class Description:

In this class, students will learn the ins and outs of sewing machines, and will learn how to sew safely and accurately in straight lines, curves, and sharp corners. Students will work on two pillows as a final project to demonstrate their proficiency with their sewing machine.

Class Goals:

The goal of this class is to familiarize students both with how to sew and with how a sewing machine works, so that they can immediately apply their skills at home or on Asylum machinery.




Students will need to purchase an inexpensive package of materials from the instructor to complete the class project.
