Sewing machines are required for classes:
All classes that have sewing involved in them, require you to bring your own sewing machine. We may have one you can borrow but it is best for you to sew on a machine that you are used to. For beginners, it is best to learn on a machine that you will use at home so you can work on your own at home later. Basic sewing machines are all that you need. If you are unsure of staying with sewing and do not want to buy a machine, then ask around of friends and family to borrow one for awhile so you can sew at home and really test out your interest. If you do borrow a machine or buy a used machine, it is highly advised that you get the machine serviced before coming to a class, because machines that have not been used regularly tend to act up as soon as someone tries to use them, which seems to happen in the middle of classes. You don't want to have a frustrating first class experience because the machine was not in good condition to sew.
