Program Description

About this event:

Join Makerspace Librarian Cady for a introductory class about sewing machines! In this lecture style class Cady will go over the parts and functions of a modern sewing machine, show how to thread and prepare to sew, and the basics of machine sewing. You may then choose to stay for open hours at 5:30PM, or return another day to sew at the Makerspace. This is an excellent "first touch" for folks who haven't sewed on a machine or may feel intimidated to do so. You can sew!

Free, registration appreciated but not required.

This event is presented in conjunction with the History Center's current exhibit, Knot Sew Fast: Patchwork of Tompkins County. ZoĆ« Van Nostrand from the History Center will be present to share some information about the exhibit and more. See more events associated with the exhibit and information at
