If you are unable to bring your own sewing machine, but you need one for class, or you have last minute touches to finish on your gala costume; there will be sewing machines available to rent at the Information Desk.

Please reserve in advance as soon as you get your class schedule, so that we may coordinate schedules, and have an adequate number of machines.

Email to Heidi Pritchett Molley, Info Department Assistant Chairperson: [email protected], letting us know what time(s) you would like to rent a machine, any workshop you will be bringing it to (or none), and your cell phone number, so that we may contact you during Costume College if necessary.

When scheduling your rental, please consider that you may want a little extra time before class to unpack the machine, try a few sample stitches, look through the instruction manual, etc.  You may want to consider picking it up 30 minutes earlier than your class, and you may need some time after class to get everything in order.
