Learn to LOVE Your Sewing Machine with Patience

Do you have a sewing machine lurking in your closet, spare room, garage, or barn that you really really really want to know how to use? Then this class is for you!!!   This class will take you on a tour of your machine, from learning to thread it, adjust tension, change needles, oiling and cleaning, and sew straight and curved lines. You will also learn about the mystery of: seam allowance! (Calling all people with vintage Singers (or any other age or brand!) in their closets! )
This is a beginner class; no prior knowledge of sewing necessary. Patience Blythe has been sewing since she was about 10 years old. Patience sews and tailors many of her own clothes and makes quilts. She LOVES sewing and wants you to feel successful at it, too.

Patience is an educator and sewist who lives in Hancock and makes many of her own clothes, like this Zadie Jumpsuit

Class fee includes threads and fabric: you will need to provide bobbins and needles, your machine and its power cord. We will be learning how to sew basic seams and you will leave the class with a four-patch pillow case for your favorite cozy couch or sweet armchair. 

Cost per person: $75
