Hi. I'm Jennifer Wiese from Workroom Social. I'm a pattern maker and designer. I've been sewing for 15 years, and I'm really excited to do this basic sewing machine video series for Howcast.com. For the series, we're actually using this sewing machine, which is the first-ever sewing machine I've owned. I learned how to sew on this machine when I was about 14 years old, so I'm really excited to use it here today.
My studio, Workroom Social, is located in Brooklyn, New York, in Bed-Stuy. And at Workroom Social, I teach sewing and screen printing, because I love fabric.
With 15 years of sewing experience and industry training, my sewing patterns are designed for home sewers to really get to see what industry methods are like. My patterns really focus on the good tips and techniques and methods that people in the garment industry are using. And so I hope that you'll check out my patterns online at workroomsocial.com.
So, now that you know a little bit about me, I hope you'll join me as I show you everything you need to know to get sewing.
