Cleaning & Maintaining your Sewing Machine

Pull out your machine and learn how to maintain it at home. From cleaning to oiling, we'll go over how to keep your forever machine running for nearly forever. Plus we'll talk about adjusting tension, fixing basic problems, and knowing when to take your machine in to be serviced. This workshop is taught by a Bernina Machine Technician.

Limited to 5 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
