Online Machine Sewing – New & Returning
Students are invited to learn a skill they will use for a lifetime and a hobby they will forever enjoy…sewing!
Registration is closed for this class
Machine Sewing is going ONLINE! New students will learn the fundamentals of sewing while experienced students will be able to continue learning, creating, and sewing in our new online classes!
Grab your favorite supervising adult and get ready to learn and explore a skill they can use for a lifetime.
New students will learn machine safety and standard sewing techniques like turning corners, making knots, and zig-zag stitches before moving on to our prerequisite projects, the Velcro pouch and totebag. After mastering the basics, we will merge with the Machine Sewing for Returning Student Class to make backpacks, accessories, stuffed animals, games and more!
During the first class, students will be able to vote on the projects they want to make. Then each week, we will tackle one project as a group, and work step-by-step together. Projects are constantly rotating and include backpacks, phone cases, clothing, accessories, bags, games, stuffed animals and more!
All supplies, including a sewing machine, will be available for pick-up from our no-contact pick-up shelf outside our (Seattle) Fremont Studio prior to class, or delivered to your doorstep at an additional fee. We can ship the supply kits for those outside of Seattle, but we are not able to ship sewing machines. Some tools and equipment will need to be returned after the classes are complete
