This program is for teens and adults.  Enrollment is limited so register early to reserve your spot. 8 minimum and 15 sewers maximum – helpers can be any number.

If you get frustrated every time you want to sew something – it may just mean your sewing machine is in need of cleaning and oiling. Or it might be something
as easy as using the right thread or needle. The Sewing Machine Clinic is designed to help you clean and maintain your sewing machine to keep it in top working order.
Maybe you have trouble getting the tension adjusted or the needle keeps breaking. This clinic will focus on routine sewing machine issues. We will walk
through the basics of cleaning and oiling your machine. Plus you can learn about basic machine stitches including blind hemming.

Supplies
Sewing Machine, Accessories and Manual. If you can’t find your manual go on-line and download the version for your machine from the manufacturer’s website.
Scrap fabric, extra needles, sewing machine oil, thread, scissors, tape measure or ruler and an extension cord.
