Paraparaumu Library now has a computerised sewing machine that you can book for your projects!
You must be 16+ and confident using a sewing machine. You will need to bring your own fabric and other materials. You can book the machine for 2 hours.
The library will supply the sewing machine and the following equipment:
- tape measure
- seam ripper
- empty bobbins
- zigzag foot
- buttonhole foot
- overcasting foot
- monogramming foot
- blind stitch foot
- button fitting foot.
You may wish to get additional Brother 11.5mm bobbins from sewing supply stores.
You will be given a quick introduction to the machine the first time you use it, and operating guides will be available on the machine.
Want some guidance on our sewing machines? Join us at Makin’ Time, an exciting two-hour drop-in session held every Friday from 2.30pm to 4.30pm in Paraparaumu Library’s Learning Centre.
