Our first class...Basic sewing and Get to Know Your Machine

Vintage thread photo from mindystrauss
We are super excited for our first class and can't wait to see you all there.

In our first class we will have two separate categories.....

Heather will be going over Patterns and how to read them, and also be teaching Hand stitching.
Briana will be talking about how to use your machine and what you need.

Here are some items that you should bring....
1. Two small pieces of 5x5 inches of fabric-any color.**
2. At least 1/3 yard of cotton fabric
2. Sewing Needles**
3. Thread**
4. Scissors**
5. Machine
6. Machine instruction manual (if you lost yours, many can be found online and ordered)
7. Straight pins
8. Tape measure
9. Seam ripper
10. Needle threader (optional- handy if your machine does not have one and you have a hard time threading a needle)
11. Any of the needed items listed in the sidebar you could bring - We are anticipating a nice sized group, so any help in bringing these items would be a huge help.  Thanks

**"If you don't have any of these Heather will provide for you."

Let us know if you have any questions.
And don't forget about the free pincushion give-away, just complete your form to enter.
Thanks a Plenty
Briana and Heather
