Join one of our expert instructors to learn the power of your machine and pick up a few techniques along the way. You will get an extensive overview and hands-on application of your machine's capabilities.  To learn all about the different capabilities your machine has, you will be making a stitch book in this class.  

This class is available and is free of charge for new student owners of sewing machines purchased from Santa Cruz Vac & Sew (purchased within the last year).  If you have not purchased your machine from us, you are welcome to attend.  However there will be a $65 fee.  

This class is intended for all general purpose sewing machines; it is NOT intended for High-end Sewing Machines, Machine Embroidery or Serger machines.  To learn how to use and get the most out of these machines, please contact us for a 1:1 with one of our experts or register for Get to Know your Serger. 

Students must bring their own machine, accessories, supplies and manual to class.  Students must also provide what type of machine they will be sewing on so we can best support your needs! (You can send an email to the shop at info@santacruzvacnsew.com or submit it at the time of order.).  

Please bring a machine to class that has been recently serviced or is in good working order.  Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to trouble-shoot or repair machines during class.  If we determine your machine is not working or cannot be used in class, we will either excuse you or offer you one of our machine rentals.  

There is a 3 person class maximum.  

All students must bring their own machine & manual.  A small kit will be provided to all attendees to make stitch book.  You will receive a 20% discount when purchasing any fabric or supplies for or during class.

The safety of our students & instructors remains our top priority.  We require that all instructors and students wear masks - either in our outdoor classroom tent or inside.  If you are feeling ill, please stay home!  Students must bring their own sewing machines (no rentals will be provided).  

You may cancel class up to 24 hrs in advance of your class start time; after which you will forfeit your class fee unless we can fill your spot from the waiting list, or you can send a friend.  We appreciate your understanding on this - as a small business, we are fortunate enough to have only the best instructors and they need to be paid!   All cancellations must be received in writing, info@santacruzvacnsew.com.  Sorry, no exceptions.
