MTL's Learn to Sew project sessions are perfect for beginners or those looking to boost their basic sewing skills and try out some new patterns. Each session begins with a lesson on the parts and functions of the sewing machine (like the zipper foot), how to properly thread that needle (what bobbins are for), and how to make a variety of stitches. You'll use the class project pattern to create something awesome that you can easily practice and replicate on your own, and become confident in your ability to operate a sewing machine.

In this class you will make a small zippered coin purse - a perfect  little multi-purpose organizer for all manner of knick-knacks. There will be a variety of different materials to choose from, so not all pouches will look exactly like the one pictured above. You will also leave with the pattern, so you can make more to share, using the sewing machines from the MN Tool Library.

No experience necessary. All materials are provided, but you're welcome to bring your own fabric if you prefer. 

* If you have a personal machine you've inherited and would like to become more familiar with, you can bring it to class and our class assistant can make sure it is in good working order.

This class is being held at Blackstack Brewery, and participants are welcome to enjoy adult beverages during/after class if they so desire.  Blackstack is a family-friendly brewery, so under 21's are also invited to participate with adult supervision.

MN Tool Library
The Minnesota Tool Library is a membership based non profit which offers members access to tools, workshop space, and community. By sharing access to tools, no one needs to own costly tools for occasional use. With MTL, we all have low-cost access to the tools we need, when we need them. Moreover, we engage the community to expand its collective skill set, helping each other to learn which tools to use for meaningful projects and connect with each other while doing it. Classes are vital to MTL’s mission. They open the doors to all to learn about different tools, how to handle them and empower community members to create projects of their own.
