This class will certify you to use the Baby Lock Presto 2 sewing machines in the Fiber Studio.

About this Class

This class is a prerequisite for Fiber Studio workshops, sew-alongs, and other events where you'd like to use these machines, and it is also a prerequisite for orientations for other sewing machines in the studio.

This class also qualifies you to use the Presto 2 machines for your own projects any time you’re in the studio. 

The Presto 2 machines are easy to use and have many functions. This class will guide 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.

BARN will provide thread, a size 80/12 needle, and quilting cotton for the orientation. You are welcome to bring other materials for your own use.

Please note that 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.
