BYOM: Bring Your Own Sewing Machine

Get to Know Your Machine.jpg

If you have a sewing machine sitting in a box at home, you're not alone. Break it out and learn to sew in this class for beginners, or anyone that needs a refresher! This class will teach you all of the ins and outs of sewing on your very own machine.

By the end of this 2 1/2 hour class, you will know how to:

Thread your machine, 

Wind a bobbin

Understand seam allowance

Troubleshoot basic machine problems.. 

and of course create a fun project using your machine!

We will teach you everything you need to know from start to finish to create your own durable, sewing machine cover to brighten up and store your machine in style! After you've completed this class, that machine won't be going back in the box!

This class is has very limited spots to ensure everyone gets the one on one attention needed to feel confident in their sewing abilities, as well as to allow time to troubleshoot any problems that may pop up.

***Your fee is inclusive of all materials, however your own sewing machine and manual are required for this class (most manuals can be found online for free if you have lost yours!)***


Meet Your Instructor:

Jill Brumer has been educating and crafting for years, so it was bound to happen that these two passions would eventually meet up!

When not sewing or teaching others to sew, Jill can be found enjoying all the things that this great city of Houston has to offer.

Check our class calendar regularly for her upcoming classes at Houston Makerspace!
