Additional information

In this 90-minute class, you'll learn the basics of sewing machine operation and safety. This session will cover machine setup, basic functions, threading the machine, reloading the bobbin, sewing straight stitches, and recognizing when stitch tension has gone awry. We'll also cover some safety best practices when operating a sewing machine. As we learn together, we'll work on a simple sewing project—a drawstring bag—which most students will be able to complete by the end of the class.

You must complete Hive Safety Training before registering for this workshop.
