"The day arrived for the first sewing class and it was a sparkling bright fall day. It was the first sun we'd seen in awhile and also warmer than in recent days. The last thing I wanted to do was spend the afternoon in the basement of the library sitting in front of a sewing machine. My friend Nick said, "Four hours is too long for that class. I'm going to come and pull you out of there. Grudginly, I went. Surpringly, the class flew by!
Tina is, I believe, the most patient, good-humored person in all of Emmet County. It was also a bonus meeting and spending time with the other students. The class taught us the technical areas of sewing which we practised and also made two projects. My expectations were far exceeded.Needless to say, Nick never showed up but if he had I'd have shooed him away. I plan to sign up for her next class in the spring."
Is your sewing machine sitting in the back of a closet gathering dust?
Do you wish you remembered how to thread it?
Do you want to learn to sew?
Bring your sewing machine and all of its accessories (power cord, manual, bobbins, presser feet, needles, etc.) to this 4-hour workshop. Instructor Tina Bury will show you how to wind the bobbin and thread the machine, talk about the most common issues when using your machine and how to avoid them, and familiarize you with the most useful stitches.
A quick project will be sewn together to get you started. You’ll leave feeling confident that you can sew on your own!
