Do you have a sewing machine that you don't use because you're not sure how? Have you been considering getting back to machine sewing but it's been a minute or a decade since you've used your machine? Join us for a day of practical, playful projects to get you (re)acquainted with sewing. Everyone will stitch a sampler of the stitches particular to their machines, and gain confidence and a better understanding of how to use their machines for everyday sewing projects. Required portable functioning sewing machine (including power cord, pedal, and other accessories you may have), sharp scissors, fine point permanent marker.
