Machine Repair. August 10th
In this class we will learn how a sewing machine works. Regardless of brand, the basic concepts of a sewing machine are the same; timing, feeding, tension, the take - up lever, and how a stitch is made. We will cover these concepts and class participants will perform a basic service on their own sewing machine. Older mechanical machines are highly preferred for students to bring. Remember that concepts are the same on older machines as they are on newer ones. In other words, its better to practice your mechanic skills on something with little value (and harder to break) than on your new expensive machine you just got. Also, the older machines generally are much easier to get inside of to service. If you plan on bring something besides a mechanical machine, call or message Tyler for approval before signing up for the class. Some computerized machines will be considered for the class but not all. Class participants will need to bring some small household tools like screwdrivers. A full materials list will be provided after sign up.
