Get Acquainted with Your Sewing Machine

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Bring in your sewing machine OR learn to use ours and get a tour of all the parts and accessories. We will learn how to: • Thread the machine • Wind and change the bobbin • Change the feet • Change the stitch length and width • Change from straight stitch to zig zag/other stitches • Replace the needle • Replace the light bulb If you bring your own machine, please bring: • Manual • Power cord and foot • Bobbins • A spool of thread • Any other bits and pieces Most sewing machine manufacturers have sewing machine manuals (even old ones) available online as well as replacement parts. Do NOT bring sewing machines that don’t work. Due to attendance issues, we encourage you to RSVP so we can prepare materials, however, ONLY THE FIRST 8 MAKERS TO ARRIVE WILL GET TO PARTICIPATE.
