Help! I Think My Sewing Machine Hates Me! Class #1

Skill Builder Format: Get to Know Your Sewing Machine
Experience Needed: NONE!
Format: Face-to-Face
Lecture/Demo/Skills Lab/Create a project!

All Machine Makes and Models are Welcome!!!!!

I started writing a GET TO KNOW YOUR CREATIVE PARTNER a few months ago. I have received lots of positive feedback from sewists of all levels about how much they have learned.

To create one of a kind items you have to know how your sewing machine works. If you want to stop being frustrated join me in class. If you prefer to just whine well then.....

In this Series: I Think MY Sewing Machines Hates Me, we will provide sewing therapy to repair your negative relationship with your machine! At the end of the series....Friends at Last!

Class #1
Getting started
     - Threading this thing? Wait, what thread do I use?
     - Does it matter what thread I use?
     - How does the thread go into this thing? 
     - How do I wind a bobbin? Bobbin? What's a bobbin?
     - How do I use my needle threader?
     - Making my machine go?
     - And more!

Class #2
Starting to Stitch
     - How do I sew straight?
     - How do I change to another stitch?
     - How do I change the length and width of my stitch?
     - Does my machine have more than 1 needle position?
     - How do I back stitch? Why do I back stitch?
     - And More!

Class #3
Anatomy of Your Machine: In this class you will all get a torn open machine so you can see the machines inners! No worries there is no blood!
