No skills or experience required! Learn the basics of machine sewing by creating a sweet and simple envelope back pillow cover. This three-hour class is perfect for anyone with little to no experience using a sewing machine, or for someone interested in a refresher course. Orient yourself to machine basics like threading a machine, loading a bobbin, sewing a straight stitch, and more. Leave these classes with knowledge that will allow you to venture into further sewing projects!

If you’re new to sewing machines, these classes are prerequisites for taking our other machine-based classes, and for use of our Sew By The Hour space.
