Are You Ready For Class?

Get Started The Right Way

Planning on taking a class with a new machine or "new to you" machine?  We will help you get ready to sew before your class.  Once you have registered for a class, call to book a one-on-one lesson to get to know your machine.  Learn the basics - winding a bobbin, threading the machine, settings, use of feet, and a little essential maintenance.  You'll get more enjoyment from the class when you are familiar and comfortable with your machine.  We may recommend a tune up.

No Charge if registered in a class
