Description

Learn the basics of sewing with a machine by making a set of 3 scrunchies! With this simple project, you will gain the skills and confidence to sew many simple projects!

We will go over the ins and outs of using a sewing machine including:

-learning the functions of all the buttons, nobs, and levers
-how to thread your machine
-how and when to use different stitches.
-how to stitch a straight and curved line.
-how to sew a tube of fabric
-how to use elastic
-an overview of the jargon associated with the craft

Once we have the basics down, we will construct a set of scrunchies from beautiful linen, denim chambray, organic cotton, and organic hemp fabrics. In an effort to be zero waste, all the fabrics used in class come from remnants from our in-house clothing line.

This workshop includes all the supplies you need. We provide a sewing machine for you to use, thread, pins, fabric, and elastic. All you need to bring is yourself!

During the workshop, enjoy 20% off all products in our shop, snacks, wine, and tea.

About the instructor:
Jennie Lennick is a San Francisco based artist, entrepreneur, and teacher. As a child in the Midwest, Jennie became enamored with traditional domestic craft, learning to sew and embroider. Her first job as a teenager was in a bead shop in Minneapolis where she taught adults and children macramé and other beading techniques. In 2010, She moved to the Bay Area to attend the San Francisco Art Institute, where she studied painting. Inspired by the natural beauty of Northern California, Jennie launched Jenny Lemons (jennylemons.com), a collection of modern block printed and hand-painted women’s clothing and textiles. Jennie's work has been featured in publications like the San Francisco Chronicle, Brit + Co, and San Francisco Magazine. Her retail store in the Mission District of San Francisco is a community space where she facilitates DIY workshops, produces her products, and showcases the talents of other local artists.
