In this class, you will be learning basic stitching techniques eg. how to thread sewing machines and wind a bobbin. This beginner class series will enable you to confidently use a sewing machine, even if you have never used one before.

Students will learn & develop foundational skills by creating fundamental seams and finishes, which are used in modern-day garment construction.

This class is taught as an instructional class. You will be walked through all the techniques, step by step, as a small group.

Optional: Bring Your Own **Straight Stitch Sewing Machine - you will be required to have read your user manual which you will review with our technician (by appt) & Petra Pooova. This will be an additional 3 hour session which will add an additional $250.00 so we can get started on your machine!

We will also have straight stitch machines for your use as well. Students that do not bring their own sewing machines will take turns completing their assignment on the available machines at our space.
