Sewing/Who can use the sewing machines

Due to constant breakage of the sewing machines, we're asking all users of Noisebridge's sewing machines—including the home machines—to take a training session to learn how to use our machines properly and thereby not break them.

The training session is part 1 and part 2. Part 1 teaches you basic fabric-cutting and sewing-machine knowledge—enough knowledge to be less likely to break our machines. Part 2 demonstrates your knowledge by producing a simple tote bag. You must complete both trainings to be qualified.

Once you have been so trained, the trainer will add your name to this page.

People who have been trained in safely and non-destructively using the home sewing machines[edit]

Getting on this list doesn't qualify you to use the industrial machines, which are very different beasts in important and dangerous ways. That requires separate training.
