Carousel community workshop reuse studio sewing machines

Skills you’ll learn:
overview of sewing machine parts and functions


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. In this introductory course, Jenny Murphy, Director of Perennial, will cover the basic parts and functions of the sewing machine. This crash course will cover threading the machine, threading the bobbin, adjusting tension, adjusting the stitch width and length, and will introduce you to basic sewing language. This workshop is a prerequisite for other sewing classes at Perennial.

    Because of a previous bad experience trying to learn from my mother, I was leery of taking this class. I decided to do it anyway and am so glad I did! Jen, the teacher, was exceedingly patient and very positive about sewing. She began by walking us through all the knobs, hooks, levers and feet on several machines so that we could adapt our knowledge to our own machines, if applicable. Our practices were easily paced, so I didn't worry about getting behind the class and I even left with a very easy, completed project. I would highly recommend this class for the fearful and the venue for anyone who believes in recycling/upcycling. Perennial walks their talk and is highly motivated to help others in the community.

    Great class and just the right amount of knowledge for the length of time we had. Highly recommend to people new to sewing, or who - like me, had been away from it for a while.

    I found myself with a new sewing machine so I thought I had better learn how to use it. Voila', Dabble via Perennial had a class! I love Dabble classes so of course I signed up.

    Loved this class! The instructor was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer our burning questions. There were a variety of machines to use which is awesome because I was able to operate one similar to mine. That said, it's also pretty hands on. I left feeling confident I wasn't going to break my machine or sew over my fingers. I would totally suggest this class over a boring YouTube video any day!
