Let's Get Sewing!
DATE: Thursday October 27th
LOCATION: Empire Make Space 168 1/2 Ottawa St. N, Basement Sewing Studio.
It's time! Time to dust off that sewing machine that's been sitting in the closet and getting it up and running.
Maybe you inherited it, maybe it was a gift, or you found a great deal on Marketplace, but in the end you couldn't figure out that pesky bobbin!
Bring in your machine and learn how to thread, service, AND troubleshoot your machine so you can actually sew up those projects you've been meaning to start.
Bring your sewing machine to the studio.
We will spend 2 hours learning the ins and outs of your particular sewing machine (sorry serger owners, that will be a different workshop!), learn some sewing machine basics, sew a "sampler", and work on a small sewing project.
If your machine is not working well it's possible that it just needs a bit of proper maintenance, something most people can do at home.
However if your machine is not operational it may need a professional servicing, in which case we will show you how to sew on a similar machine (we have a WIDE variety! so don't worry about missing out) and give you a referral for a local sewing machine repair shop.
This in-person workshop is on Thursday October 27th 5:30pm-7:30pm.
The next Master Your Machine workshop is: TBD
This workshop is located down stairs and therefore not accessible at this time. We will be adding a zoom and ground floor options in the future to make our workshops more accessible.
