This class is NOT for someone who have never used a sewing machine. You must understand how to thread the machine, wind a bobbin, and understand the basics of your machine. This is, however, for someone who wants to go to the next step and learn how to make some basic seams, hems, buttonholes, and various other techniques. The price includes a nicely packaged kit of instructions, reference material and the fabric required to complete samples of the various techniques, which can then be fastened on the appropriate instructional pages for future reference. All you will need to bring is your machine and some thread in any color.
