Event description

Description

Is your sewing machine sitting in the back of a closet gathering dust? Have you been gifted your mom’s old machine but have no idea where to start?

In this 2.5 hour class for absolute beginners, we’ll teach you the basics of machine sewing, including threading your machine, bobbin winding, stitch selection and sewing seams. We’ll finish by making a modern envelope throw pillow in upholstery-weight fabric for you to take home. All materials are included. You’ll leave this fun and relaxed workshop feeling confident that you can sew on your own!


Envelope Pillows


You’ll need to bring:

-Your sewing machine and all the accessories that come with it (instruction manual, power cord, bobbins, presser feet, needles, etc).

A choice of precut uphostery-weight modern fabrics, down pillow insert and coordinating thread are included in the cost of this workshop.

**Curious about sewing, but don’t have a machine? We have a few extra machines for you to try out. Message us here prior to enrolling to check availability.**
