The library makerspace has four sewing machines (Baby Lock Zeal) and one embroidery machine (Brother NS2750D).
Read more below to get information on how you can get started.
The makerspace has one sewing machine and an embroidery machine out in the space. If you would like to sew at another table or if the other sewing machine is in use feel free to take one from shelf or ask makerspace staff. You are free to set up at any of the tables but equipment must stay in the makerspace.
Makerspace staff can guide you through winding a bobbin and threading the machine, setting the tension and basic general use of the machine. Staff is not able to teach you how to sew. We will from time to time have workshops and classes that will teach some basic beginner skills.

The makerspace only has a very limited amount of scrap fabric. If you are working on a project or have a project in mind you will need to bring your own fabric. See below for the sewing supplies provided in the Makerspace.
While this is not an exhaustive list you are welcome to bring your own sewing supplies.
