|Description:||About this event
This class is for people with little to no sewing machine experience. On one of the Textile Studio's Singer Heavy Duty 4423 machine, students will learn the parts of a sewing machine, how to thread, operate and maintain the machine, and how to use the tools available in the sewing area of the textile studio at Technocopia. We will also go over safe cutting with rotary mats and rulers and shop standards of cleanliness and organization.
The practice project for this class will be the creation of a small credit or business card wallet. A small selection of free fabric is available to students for this project, but students are also welcome to bring in their own piece of quilters cotton (¼ yard will be plenty) if they prefer.
Successful completion of this class will result in certification of Technocopia members to use the sewing machines in the textile studio. For non-members, this makes students eligible to participate in upcoming project based classes, and for members, this results in free use of the machines during their membership hours.
For members with more advanced sewing experience, contact email@example.com to discuss a more appropriate certification process.
