2. Obedience School for your Sewing Machine

$99.00
Does your sewing machine seem to have a mind of its own? Are you tired of continually cleaning up all the messes your machine leaves on your projects? Time to teach your machine to behave, plus learn some basic tricks so you can fall in love with sewing again! Join Teri with your sewing machine for a hands-on live webinar course on needles, threads and tension. Such explosive topics especially with so many products to pick from on the market today — bring all your problems to this class! Nothing to buy — teach your machine to use the products you already own!

  • Beginner level
  • Must own sewing machine for this class — any make, model and brand

Two 1.5 hour courses or 1 session of a 3-hour course
12 student limit for each course — sign up now!

You will need to have access to the internet for this webinar. You will be threading your machine and sewing during the webinar — please have it on and ready to go.

For the beginning of the webinar, please have the following set up: 2 pieces of 12 x 12 neutral fabric of your choice. Color of the fabric must contrast with the color of the thread. Take care not to pick a tone on tone fabric — grunge is ok. If you normally prewash your fabrics, please do so with your test fabric and prep as you always prep your fabric to sew.

Thread — pick two contrasting colors your favorite thread that you like to use. Very important to use the same brand and weight. Thread one color on the top and put the other color in the bobbin. Use your favorite needle and have the machine ready to sew a straight stitch at the start of the webinar.

Please have these handy nearby — any/all threads you own, and all needles you have to play with. If possible, you need to have your machine manual, because we will be looking for certain features.

This class, in addition to the live webinar, has a private, visible Facebook group. You will have access to the Obedience School for your Sewing Machine by Teri Hall group by answering two questions. You need the date of the webinar you attended and a special code that is given in the actual webinar. If you do not have a Facebook account, please check the FAQ’s for more information.
