Skills you’ll learn:
overview of sewing machine parts and functions
Join teaching artist + Perennial founder Jenny Murphy for this live virtual class! It is strongly recommended that you have a home sewing machine set up (with a pedal, plugged in) prior to the class so that you can get the most out of this course! You will need a scrap of fabric (0.5 yard), thread, and a bobbin as well.
Sewing machines can be a bit intimidating. Like any other tool, once you become familiar with its pieces and parts you will have more success (and fun!) using it to your advantage. In this introductory course, Perennial staff will cover the basic parts and functions of the sewing machine. This crash course will cover threading the machine, threading the bobbin, adjusting tension, adjusting the stitch width and length, and will introduce you to basic sewing language. This workshop is a prerequisite for other sewing classes at Perennial.
We will email all class participants a link to join the live stream of this course via Zoom prior to the event.
