#1 Sewing Machine Basics

Just bought a new sewing machine? This hands-on class is open to owners of all brands of sewing machines. Sewing Mastery #1 is designed to build the foundation of basic use and sewing machine etiquette. Learn care and maintenance to keep your sewing machine running smoothly and have a long productive life. We will explore needles and their many different uses and quality sewing thread. Familiarize yourself with stitch settings to improve performance when trying new techniques. Understand the proper use of seam guides, basic feet, quarter-inch feet and walking feet. Fee: $75 or FREE with purchase of a Bernina or Husqvarna Viking sewing machine from Heirloom Creations.

#2 Practical Sewing Techniques

This hands-on class is open to owners of all brands of sewing machines. After attending Sewing Machine Mastery #1, take your new sewing machine to the next level while using a variety of different weights of fabric. Practice using many built in practical stitches for hemming, mending, overcasting, edge stitching and blind hemming. Understand what tension really means and how it works. Try out new uses for buttonholes and sewing on buttons. Those with a Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR) will stay an extra ½ hour to learn how to use this special accessory. Fee: $75 or FREE with qualifying purchase of a Bernina or Husqvarna Viking sewing machine from Heirloom Creations.
