This is a brand new Online Video Class from M Avery Designs Sewing Studio!

I'm Megan Avery and I've been teaching people how to sew for about the last 14 years.

I have a sewing studio in Hoboken NJ. In my studio we host sewing classes to people of all ages just about every day of the week.

Lately, I'm on a quest to teach even more people how to sew, so I created this brand new online video sewing class Sewing Machine Basics.

It's a basic sewing class that we've taught in my sewing studio since day one.

I have to say, this video class is as good, if not better, than the class at my studio.


Here is what we'll cover in this online sewing class:

  • Parts of the Sewing Machine
  • Threading the Sewing Machine
  • Winding & Threading the Bobbin
  • Using the Sewing Machine (including backstitching, sewing curves/corners)
  • The Sewing Maze
  • Seam Allowance Explained
  • Stitch Width & Length Explained
  • Decorative Stitches
  • How to Make a small Pillow/Pin Cushion

Most of this video sewing class is demonstrated on a Brother SB700t sewing machine, but everything taught in this online class can be applied to any home sewing machine you own.

Plus - As a bonus I've included videos of older model sewing machines being threaded.



"Megan is a super friendly instructor who explains things very clearly and in detail. She is extremely personably and welcoming. The class was informative and covered everything oh need to know about the basics of a sewing machine. We even made our own little pin cushion. Awesome!!!"

"Megan was great & she's a very patient instructor. I had never touched a sewing machine in my life so it was an educational experience. With more time invested I believe I will be able to complete an outfit."
