We’ll cover the basics of sewing in this single introductory session: you’ll learn about the anatomy of a sewing machine; learn basics like how to wind a bobbin, thread your machine, and troubleshoot tension; and you’ll leave class with a simple, quick-to-sew envelope-back pillow. This is a very introductory course that will cover method as much as inspiration and resources: at the end of class, you’ll receive a handout with a listing of some of the best sewing resources for everything from quilting to garment stitching, and from blogs to books to help you keep going!


  • Come to class with your prewashed fabric (1 1/2 yards of a single fabric, or 3/4 yards each of two contrasting fabrics)
  • Matching thread
  • Pillow form
  • We will provide the sewing machines, but if you have one in working condition that you’d like to get acquainted with, please bring it in!
