Try-a-Treadle-Sewing Machine Longmont



Have you ever experienced the living nightmare of being unable to sew because the power is out? Have you considered buying a generator just for this purpose? We have another idea to relieve you of this realistic stress--use that treadle machine that is doubling as a bedside table, sitting in the backroom or stored in the garage!

If you own a treadle sewing machine or are considering the purchase of one but you are unsure how to use it, take this Try a Treadle workshop/class and get comfortable with these machines so that you can sew when the power is out and just for fun!

These beautiful machines are a pleasure to work with and worthy of being cared for and operated by modern-day artisans as we honor the legacy of our ancestors who practiced their craft on them.


In this class, you learn:

*Basic Maintenance of your treadle machine
*How to wind a bobbin
*How to Thread the machine
*How to treadle and time to practice treadling

Maggie's Sewing and Fabric will provide treadle machines. There will be a maximum of two students per machine.

If you have your own machine and would like to bring that to class, please make sure it is serviced and in good working order prior to class. We offer this service at Maggie's for $99.99
