Class of The Week: Sewing 101

Sewing machines are monsters. There are bobbins, needles, threads, buttons, knobs and holes everywhere. You probably got it as a hand-me-down from Grandma or a friend, are without an instruction manual and have no idea where to get started. Are we right?

With a little help from Kelly, Sewing 101 can dust off  your old machine and bring it back to life!

We take you step by step all the way through the processes of the sewing machine in an easy-to-understand dialogue without weighing you down with useless terms and jargon. The goal is for all of our students to walk out confident in being able to thread and fix their machines if something goes wrong in the stitching process.

After a brief lecture and run-through of how to sew basic stitches, Kelly shows you how to do two great projects: our trademark beer koozie and a stuffed sock monster! You leave with the patterns in tow so you can either work on your projects at home or have classes of your own with friends!

The beer koozie is super easy and fun — you can use a variety of fabrics and stitches to create your own, one of a kind can hugger. The best part about these is that they take no time at all and are a great project to do for parties.

The sock monster is one of our favorites at Workshop — you’ll find them crawling all over our space and library. One of our students made the most adorable sock monster from a red tube sock. We were totally in love!

Sign up for Sewing 101 and come make the dust disappear off your sewing machine!
