One of my favorite things about the We Sew Retro community is that we have vintage sewing beginners crafting up a storm right alongside the professionals.
No matter your skill level, we can all benefit from brushing up our sew-jo with a class now and then. We’ve all heard about (and some of us have taken) Gertie’s Bombshell dress course on Craftsy, and the Craftsy peeps are offering up a free course perfect for the beginner: Sewing Machine 911. Yes, free. They don’t do that often you know.
What You Will Learn in Sewing Machine 911
- How to familiarize yourself with the parts of your machine and how they operate
- How to perform basic skills, like threading the machine and winding the bobbin
- How to pinpoint signs and symptoms of common problems
- How to clean your machine to keep it working well and lengthen its lifespan
