Beginning Sewing (BAKERSFIELD)

Beginning sewing is a first step in trying a new hobby. If you've ever wanted to try or learn to sew, this class is for you. All students will be provided with basic supplies and machines for class use. The machine we will be learning on is the Baby Lock Joy - it's a great introduction machine to get started on!

Classes will work on going over the machine and machine basics, with skill building practices before jumping into further skill building projects.

Over the course of the class, students will learn how to thread and use the Joy, will work on sewing straight lines, and make 4 projects as well as their own sample pieces.
