    Beginning sewing is a lot like advanced duct taping. If you can make it out of tape and paper you have what it takes to make it out of cloth and thread. Make tool bags, tactical clothing, trim for your woodwork, upholster your car, or go traditional and make a quilt. 
    This course outlines the basics of needle selection, thread types, proper fabric selection, winding a bobbin, and thread tension- all of which are important components that make up a successful project. Lean tricks that will make the machines work every time. This class is divided between lecture and lab- students will have the opportunity to sew a set of sample stitches with each machine to practice what they have learned. 
    Stop living in fear! The next time you have a project that involves fabric, charge forward and make it happen. Learning the basics of sewing opens a world of possibilities for future designs and projects. 
    A $6 material fee covers each student's thread and sample fabric. 
    **Closed-toe shoes are a requirement**

    In this class you will learn the preparation skills that will save you from hours of trial and error. We will begin by cleaning and oiling the machine; and then move step by step through material selection to quilt loading. At each step you will learn about the most common mistakes and how to avoid them. Upon completion of this class you will understand how to select backing, batting, thread and needles as well as have hands on experience with thread tension and other adjustments specific to our machine.

    **Closed toe shoes are required.**
