Sewing Machine Basics

Are you inspired by the idea of sewing but don’t know where to start? Maybe you have a sewing machine at home gathering dust?

Join us for this beginner-friendly session for folks who are curious about borrowing one of our sewing machines or getting to know theirs better. We’ll cover the absolute basics of machine set-up to get you comfortable using your machine.

If you have a sewing machine, bring it along – please make sure you have needle/s, a bobbin and thread for your machine, and some good scissors. If you have a manual, bring that as well (or see if you can find one on Google).

We will have a couple of machines for the group to use, along with fabric and some extra tools for hands-on learning. Please note we won’t be working on a specific project, just practicing techniques to get you started.

Registration is required for this session! Email to sign up – please let us know if you’re bringing a sewing machine or would like to try one of the library’s machines. This program is designed for adults.

If you already know how to use a machine and sew your own projects, this isn’t the session for you, but we recommend checking out creativebug for patterns and inspiration, free with your library card!

The event is finished.
