About the instructor - Gina Lee:

My love for collecting vintage sewing machines have opened many paths for me. I have restored a long lost vintage singer machine. Then I grew into acquiring an industrial sewing machine.

As a resident of Los Angeles, Ca., my exposure allowed me to experience production and percument in the fabric district in the downtown area.

Pillow covers were my most requested items to make. I found such ease to kick out these projects on an industrial machine.

So, let's experience what a pleasure it is to learn about this great machine and make an indoor/outdoor pillow here at the space!
