    Meet Your Machine: Sewing

    Oh. Nice… potato sack dress. Jeez, you could’ve at least stitched a bit of trim around the neck hole. What’s that, you don’t know how to stitch? We get it. You’re only human. But it’s time to stop making excuses and Meet Your Machine! Take this course to learn how to do magical things, such as sew a perfectly straight line or a zigzag stitch, wind a bobbin, thread a machine, or turn sheets of cloth into a wearable garment. You’ll start small by making a napkin, but with the skills it took to do just that, you can make all kinds of things for practice. Before long, you’ll be able to turn that potato sack into a prom dress! “How did you do it?!” They’ll ask. And you’ll reply, “Simple. I just had to Meet My Machine.” Remember, it’s all in the stitch.
