Very few of the students had ever used a sewing machine before. We learned different parts of the machine and sewing utensils. Next they learned to wind a bobbin, thread a machine and actually sew. Students have had fun making their own drawstring backpacks, letter pillows, and a few have finished their aprons. The aprons, by using the embroidery machine, have their names on them. This class is a lot fun because you go from nothing to something you make that is useful
