This course is perfect for those who have never sewn before or those who need a refresher on the sewing machine. In this 3-day series, you will learn about the parts and accessories of the sewing machine and how to properly wind the bobbin, thread the machine, and check stitch tension. To ensure that you come out of the course confident with stitching, you will make three Lockstitch & Lustre projects packed with sewing techniques! In the first session, the projects are a catch-all and a hexagon fabric tray; the second project is a pieced envelope pillowcase; and the third project is a choice between a daypack, a courier bag, or an asymmetrical zippered clutch.
