Is your sewing machine in the back of a closet gathering dust? Does the thought of threading it and actually using it intimidate you?
Do you want to learn to sew?

Bring your sewing machine and all of its accessories (power cord, bobbins, presser feet, needles, and manual) and you’ll learn to:
- thread your machine

About Susan Fuller: Susan’s love of sewing goes back to grade school, when she was responsible for doing her own laundry and instead of washing her gym clothes, she’d just sew up some new ones for the week. Today she lives in Reston, VA and homeschools her three teenagers while sewing whatever’s not nailed down. Susan has a masters degree in education from Syracuse University and teaches fitness classes at the YMCA and is an active member in several needlework groups including the Modern Quilt Guild.
And of course she still chooses sewing over laundry.
