March workshop – Learn to use your sewing machine –

Make friends with your sewing machine!
Learn how to use it, troubleshoot it and keep it in good shape!

This is a three hour workshop for people who have sewing machines but don’t know how to use them, or who want to understand them fully and embark on all kinds of sewing projects!

In this workshop you will learn :

  • How to set up your machine and use it, including how to thread and sew straight lines.
  • How to wind a bobbin and change the feet for different purpose.
  • How to fix problems like adjusting thread tension and skipping stitches.
  • How to clean, oil and maintain your machine.
    (However I can not fix a broken machine.)
