Thimble Fingers Sewing Studio Is Temporarily Closed

Our studio doors are closed until Harris County lifts the “Stay Home, Work Safe” mandate. We have suspended our studio classes, but we are working on ways to teach our students online! For more information, click here.

Fast Start Series


Fast Start on the Sewing Machine

Learn what it's like to use a sewing machine before investing in one. In 3 hours you'll learn how to thread it up and sew a straight line. We will then teach secrets about handling the machine that normally take forever to figure out on your own. And in the process of getting comfortable with the sewing machine, you will make a large drawstring bag to prove you can sew.


You and Your New Sewing Machine

Just bought a new machine? Let’s get it out of the box and put it to work! Bring us your new machine for a 1-hour private orientation on how to thread it, select and adjust stitches, and use the accessories.


Fast Start on the Serger

No serious sewing room is complete without a serger. It's a must for sewing knits and giving a professional finish to all your sewing projects. Use this class to see how a serger can add even more fun to your sewing experience.

This 3-hour class introduces the main tasks and capabilities of a basic serger. We get you through the learning curve of threading and operating a basic serger, including 3-thread and 4-thread serging and use of the basic machine accessories. Learn on our machines before you invest in your own.


You and Your New Serger

Now that you've got your own new serger, it's time to make it your new best friend! Bring it to class with its accessories and user manual for a private orientation on how to thread it, adjust it and practice setting up the four major stitches: 3-thread overlock, 4-thread overlock, rolled hem, and flatlock. (Cover stitches and chain stitching can be included only as time allows.)

No sewing skills are taught in this session - only how to thread your machine and operate its features.
