Question from Anonymous
will we be only working with sewing machines?

The teacher allocates time in each session to explain and demonstrate the steps. And then we would have our time to work on our project. The teacher is always ready and available for us to answer questions each student has. We also have chance to use serger machine in the class.

Question from CalmHappyAllDay
Do they teach you how to put the thread in the sewing machine. I never sewed before using a machine
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Since this is a beginner's class, yes they will teach how to put the thread in the sewing machine.
Answer from Sauman L. Verified Student
The class definitely is suitable for anyone who hasn't touch a sewing machine before. We learned how to thread/operate the sewing machine, and practice a few basic stitches during the first 2 sessions. I basically was scared about using sewing machine before this class. I am totally confident to use a sewing machine after finished this class. One thing I need to suggest is, don't miss a session, or you would miss a lot since it was a lot of things to cover in each lesson.
Answer from Maria K. Verified Student
Yes, they do.

Great class. Joan was very patient. Class had all different levels. Finished my pajama pants. Learned to use a surger and sewing machine. It’s a lot of info but if you stick with it it’s a great sense of accomplishment. I practiced after every class at home.

The instructor (Ms. Endres) is very knowledgeable and very approachable. I enjoyed the class very much, and money are well-spent. As a beginner, I learned a lot about sewing from the course. During the class, you have good amount of opportunities to have hand-on experience on the machine. I feel very confident to use the sewing machine now. I wouldn't hesitate to attend another class from the same instructor.
