Sewing machine - Janome1

A class for sewist who have a sewing machine, but may not know how to get the most out of it.  Whether your sewing machine is 30 years old, or 3 months old, a few tips and tricks can make it do more, sew better, and last longer.

Sewing at Made on Marion

In this class we’ll cover:

  • basic sewing machine use and care, at home, and in transport
  • how to clean and oil (if appropriate) your machine
  • basic sewing machine functions, such as: adjusting tension, using the extra thread holders (and how to mock one up if you don’t have one), changing needles etc.
  • extra functions that your machine may have such as: the ability to adjust foot pressure, dropping your feed dogs, S.S. stitches etc.
  •  what each foot that came with your machine is for

Sewing machine - Janome2

At the end of the class you’ll know how to do more with your machine, and how to take better care of it, to avoid future problems.

This class is suitable for all electric or computerised sewing machine models.  Please give the make and model of the sewing machine you will be bringing to class when you register.

If the class is extremely popular it will be broken up by sewing machine make/models (e.g, all Janome & Elna machines made by Janome in one class, all Bernina in another etc), and certain models may be asked to move to a later class date.

To register for the class (or to inquire about any class), please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
