ONSITE: Learn to Use a Sewing Machine

In this beginners' course, students will learn the basics of machine sewing. First, students will learn how to set up their machines and practice using them. Once students feel comfortable with simple machine sewing, they will have the opportunity to sew a zippered pouch to apply their new skills. Through the construction of the zippered pouch, students will learn how to cut and measure their fabric, consider seam allowance, put in a lining, and put in a zipper.
