For thsi class, Students do not need to bring anything to the class but if you have a sewing a machine and you would like to ask questions about it,  you are welcome to bring it so I can help you learn how to use it during class.

Additional information for students would like to use and bring their own sewing machine make sure that you have all parts to use your machines and bringing a thread for your machine in recommend so you can go home with a threaded machine.;-)

Supplies for all to use: We have scissors and fabric for you to use in class as well for all students!!!

About the course and fabric distribution: This three hours course is fully dedicated to sewing (as sewing can be a difficult task for beginners) because students use the entire 3 hours and we supply the fabric, all designs are pre-cut. It is important for each student, since this class focuses on the topic of basic sewing to get as much sewing practice on the machine, which includes threading, measuring and sewing correct seam measurements, and stitching straight lines.
