Question from BM P.
What kind of sewing machine will be used for class? Can I bring my own sewing machine and learn the basics?
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Sewing Center provides the Janome Sewist 500 sewing machines. If you would like to bring your own machine, a private lesson might be a better option. Hope that helps!

The class was organized and small-scale enough so that each person could get help and have their questions answered. I liked that you get to take home a finished product! The instructors were very helpful, especially in helping to catch me up when I was running late.
