You will learn how to manipulate and stitch out designs found within your machine. Please bring your machine, embroidery module and large oval hoop.

Mastery classes are provided to you when you purchase a new or used machine from Sew Original. You will need to purchase the appropriate Machine Mastery Kit for the machine you purchased.

New Machine Rental Guidelines It is always preferable that you bring your own machine to class. You know the functions of your machine best. Due to some recent challenges in class when students are sewing on unfamiliar machines, we are instituting the following changes.   We have one BERNINA 430 (5.5mm stitch width) and one BERNINA 450 (9mm stitch width) available to rent for $25 per class. You must pay for rental and reserve these machines in advance. At this time we do not have embroidery machines available for rental.

CLASS CANCELLATION & BAD WEATHER POLICIES Sew Original requires that you pre-register for ALL classes. Payment is due at time of registration. This assures your place in the class. We need this commitment from you for our classes to run smoothly. Also, it helps our teachers to properly prepare for the class. Our teachers work hard to offer classes they hope our customers will want to take & enjoy. Refunds are available only when a student cancels at least 7 days prior to the class. NO Refund will be given if a student cancels within 6 days before class. In the event that Sew Original / teacher must cancel a class, students will be contacted and a full refund will be given. Please do not ask for exceptions. Remember all students are here to learn new techniques and build their sewing skills. As much as we love children, we ask that you DO NOT bring your children to class, unless it is a class for your child or a class that is for the child & parent working together. Remember to turn off the ringer to your phone. If you answer your phone, please leave the classroom to answer your phone. Please arrive 15-20 minutes before your class is scheduled. This allows the teacher time to set up the classroom and get ready for the class. Please let us know if you have a class you want to see in our shop. You may also create your own class. Get 4 or more friends together, contact us, and we will find a teacher and set aside a time for the class. This is also the season when we might have questionable weather. If the local school system is closed our classes for the day will be canceled or rescheduled. Please call the shop before coming to a class during bad weather.
