Hive: Sewing 101

This is the one that gets you behind the wheel (the hand wheel, that is)! Get started sewing by getting to know your machine. Learn about the anatomy of your machine, why you shouldn't be afraid of your bobbin, machine do's and don'ts, basic maintenance, tension tips, presser feet, needles, and more! By the end of this class, you'll be ready to thread your machine fearlessly and start stitching.  During the class, you will complete a custom pillowcase in the class to dress up your bed!
