Sewing Machine Set-Up Class


Loading schedule...






The most common problems that happen while sewing can be easily fixed if you know how your sewing machine works. For beginners, having confidence in handling your sewing machine can mean the difference between happily sewing, and throwing your machine out the window.

In this 2 hour class, we'll help demystify the humble sewing machine in an in-depth manner that you can understand.

Keep in mind this class is free if you purchase any of the sewing machines we have for sale in our store, new or second hand. Send us an email if you'd like to know more about purchasing a machine.


  • Winding a bobbin.
  • Utilising tension, stitch width and stitch length dials (if your machine has these features).
  • Using and understanding what the different stitches do.
  • Selecting the right type of needle and size for projects.
