The Makerspace has two Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116 sewing machines.  

The Makerspace staff can provide basic instruction on the use of the sewing machines.

If you are new to sewing or need a refresher, here are some suggested videos:

 

Sewing Supplies

The Makerspace has a variety of scraps available for use.  If you have a specific project, you will need to provide your own fabric to assure that you have enough of what you need to complete your project.

A supply of black and white thread is available in the Makerspace.  Any other thread color will need to be provided by the user.

The Makerspace maintains a supply of Singer Universal sewing machine needles in sizes appropriate for sewing lightweight fabrics (i.e. cottons) to heavier fabrics (i.e. lighter weight denim, canvas).  If you are sewing a very delicate fabric (i.e. chiffon, lace) or a very heavy fabric (i.e. heavy denim, upholstery fabric), you will need to provide your own, appropriately sized needles.
