Beginning Quiltmaking Series #2 - Sewing Machine Care & Maintenance

All sewing machines have the same basic functions, but they often look very different from machine to machine. This class will help demystify sewing machines for beginners, and help you understand tension and stitch functions. And if you’ve never used your automatic needle threader, we’ll get it figured out!

Learn to give your machine a thorough cleaning and give it basic adjustments. We might even be able to save you a trip to the repair shop, or at least determine if it’s necessary.
