INTRO TO INDUSTRIAL SEWING: Machine Basics + Canvas Bag

  • ADX PORTLAND 417 SE 11th Avenue PORTLAND, OR (map)

The first part of this class is designed  specifically to acquaint you with operating ADX's ConSew 206RB industrial sewing machine safely and effectively. Learn the ins & outs of operating our well-made and robust industrial walking-foot machine, an older model with a handful of counter-intuitive safety concerns that will be addressed in class. Learn how to properly thread the machine, how to measure out and cut fabric using a simple pattern, and how to sew a straight stitch through multiple layers of canvas using a walking foot. In the second part of this class, get to know different areas of The Cube while you cut, sew, and screenprint the ADX logo on your canvas bag. Finish this class with the confidence you need to incorporate sewn elements into your otherwise textile-less projects AND you have your very own personalized canvas bag with which to casually impress your friends.  A win-win!


Some experience with a home sewing machine is strongly recommended. Instructor will assume students have some working knowledge of sewing vocabulary and concepts.
