Love Your Sewing Machine

Does the thought of using your sewing machine leave you feeling a bit intimidated or overwhelmed? Maybe you've sewn a bit but have gotten frustrated with broken thread, skipped stitches, or a "bird's nest" under the fabric. Would you like to actually make something that you can be proud of? Well, it's time you learned how to properly use your sewing machine.

Come join me for this 4-week class to learn basic machine skills, increase your confidence, and make a BIG head start into becoming a proficient sewist. We'll begin will all the basics of machine use and move quickly into creating practical items with fabric and thread.

What? You already know how to use your sewing machine? Well for all you intermediate or advanced sewing enthusiasts you must check out Superior University over at Superior Threads. The folks at Superior Threads are the most knowledgeable about thread quality and service that I've come across.  Superior University is a monthly "project club" with a carefully designed project including featured products and threads. You will receive a simple pattern and easy-to-follow instructions to create a project that may only take 30-90 minutes to complete.  Many projects will include a product or technique you may have never tried before.  The purpose is to help you increase your knowledge and use of threads and related products which will add more possibilities to your sewing projects. One of the many great things about it is that there is open enrollment so you can start and stop any time. No contract. No registration fees/federal excise taxes/dealer prep/fuel surcharges, or other fast-talking hidden charges.

I've signed up and can't wait to get my first project materials to arrive.
