Learn to Love Your Home Sewing Machine

Tuesday, September 28th | 6:30pm-8:00pm | Master Your Home Sewing Machine


If you have a sewing machine hanging around the house but you’re unsure how to use it, this class is for you! Learn the basics of sewing on a home machine, names of parts, how to wind a bobbin, thread your machine, and the basics of getting started. If you have a portable machine you can bring it to class for more hands-on learning, otherwise there will be clear information provided (with photos)  so you can review with your machine at home.

This class is appropriate for ages 14+.

This class will take place at Rochester Brainery, located at 176 Anderson Ave F109, Rochester, NY 14607.

Live subtitles will be available upon request during this class. If you prefer a sign language interpreter, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
