Our machine classes are designed to help you learn to use your Janome sewing machine.  The Janome classes are free with the purchase of your machine.  Customers who have purchased Janome machines elsewhere are more than welcome to join us, but must pay a class fee.  The classes are designed to orient you to your machine.  We will go over basics such as threading, bobbin winding, using your various feet with utility stitches, accessories and features of your machine. On the machines that have memory functions, we will also cover those as well as embroidery functions for embroidery machines and any software that comes with your machine. More advanced models will require multiple classes to cover all the appropriate features of your machine.

NOTE:  PLEASE Call the shop or stop in to register for these classes. No email registrations will be taken.  Please be prepared to state your model so we can be sure you are in the correct class!  Thanks!
