Why would you be interested in Sewing?

Sewing can be a creative outlet, a way to fix your own clothes, or even a money-maker! There is a lot to learn, from simple things for beginners to more advanced things for experienced sewers.

Sewing in the Innovation Lab

In the Innovation Lab:

  • There are 10 Singer Heavy Duty 4432 sewing machines for regular sewing needs.
  • There is 1 Elna Diva 9000 sewing machine for applying decorative stitches.
  • There is 1 Brother 1034D Serger which is great for sewing knits and finishing edges.
  • There is 1 Brother PE-800 embroidery machine for decorative embellishment on fabrics.
  • There is 1 Juki Blind Stitch portable hemming machine.
  • You can practice lots of different techniques on different fabrics.
  • Collaborate with other learners working on sewing. 

Here's a quick video explaining some things you can do with the simplest stitch - the straight stitch.
