Our sewing machines may be used by any user at any time. If you do not know how to use the machine, please ask a Makerspace Monitor for a quick tutorial. We also host sewing workshops for a variety of skills. Keep watch for them on our Technology Instruction page. In the mean time, feel free to check out the machine's User Manual to get a head start or take a look at Singer's instructional video on using the machine.
