Class, No Prerequisite, Studio Orientation

Fiber Arts Studio



This orientation to the Fiber Studio's Baby Lock Presto 2 machines also serves as a prerequisite for Fiber Studio workshops, sew-alongs, and other events where you'd like to use these machines and for working on your own projects any time you’re in the studio. It is also a prerequisite for orientations to other sewing machines in the studio.

Presto 2 machines are easy to use and have many functions. This class guides you through basic machine use including:

  • Opening and setting up the cabinet
  • Winding the bobbin and threading
  • Using the control panel to select stitches and set other functions
  • Selecting and replacing presser feet to match your stitch selection
  • Changing the needle
  • Finding more information about the machine in the reference guide and on the Internet

We’ll end the class with a checklist for putting your machine away so it’s ready for the next person.


  • Note: This class is about the Baby Lock Presto 2 sewing machines, not the industrial sewing machine or embroidery machine. 
  • We will not focus on learning to sew, although learning to use the machines is a great start!
  • Skill level: All levels

Class Policies

  • Ages 14 and up are welcome.
