Sewing Machines 101 – Troubleshooting Q&A

April 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Registration Link:

Join Meridy Capella from Evergreen Alterations to discuss Sewing Machine Troubleshooting and Q&A. With so many people rallying to the cause of mask making in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been hearing the groans of bunched thread on a bobbin and seams that just don’t seem right.

Meridy will cover threading, tension, bobbin Issues and other topics.

We will focus on two popular face mask patterns:
Deaconess Mask –
Fu Mask –

We will also be joined by Amy Anselmo of the Green Mountain Mask Makers who will help you get connected to this wonderful grassroots effort to make masks and get them in the hands of those who need them.
