About This Class


Are you ready to pull your sewing machine out of the closet and learn how to use it? Maybe you are looking to refresh your skills? Maybe you've never learned the proper techniques.

Then this sewing machine Boot Camp is for you. Sewing Machine Boot Camp is meant to show you how VERY EASY it is to teach yourself how to use a sewing machine, despite how overwhelming the manual that came with your machine may seem. The best part? It doesn't matter if you've never touched a sewing machine before.

In this comprehensive boot camp, you will

  • Get to know the parts of a sewing machine
  • Learn how to properly thread it
  • Wind a bobbin
  • Sew in a straight line
  • Make a pillowcase

Once you've established the proper foundation, you'll be ready to begin learning to sew all the projects on your Pinterest boards. On top of that, you'll have the knowledge and the confidence to be able to sew much, much more.

After learning to use your machine we will try out your new skills by making a pillow case!
