Introduction to Sewing Machines
Sewing machines can be a bit intimidating. Like any other tool, once you become familiar
with its pieces and parts you will have more success (and fun!) using it to your advantage.
Overcome your hesitation in using your sewing machine. From old machines to brand
new ones, they all work basically the same. Learn how a sewing machine works and practice
sewing. All materials provided.
