We recommend changing your sewing machine needle before every new project. Needles can be purchased at the shop and range in price from $1.50 - $2.25. 

    Do I need to know how to use a sewing machine?

    Our sewing machines are shared and for the community to enjoy, for that reason we require all members to enrol in a short 45-min workshop called PFAFF Sewing 101. Members must complete this workshop prior to starting their membership, members who have complete our Intro to Machine Sewing workshop are exempt.  

    If you are just starting out, we recommend taking our beginner courses Garment Basics and Intro to Machine Sewing to give you the fundamentals you need to start sewing clothing.

    Do I need to know how sew clothing? 

    No, the sewing membership gives you space and time to learn how to sew clothes at your own pace. The internet is a a great source for beginner sewers and with patience, practice, and a seam ripper anyone can sew clothes. 

    However, if you are really keen to fast track your knowledge and learn in-depth the steps required to make a garment that you love we recommend taking our Garment Basics course.

    Will there be someone there to help me sew? 

    No, members are unsupervised during sewing time. Employees present in the store will be completing other tasks for the business including fulfilling orders, stocking inventory and engaging with customers. Employees may be available to help when they can.  If you are looking for more guidance we can offer 1-on-1 sewing lessons. If you are interested please contact us for more information. 

    How can I sign up for the membership prerequisite courses?
