Safety Concerns

The sewing machine makes use of a sewing needle that, when not used properly, can break and be hazardous to users. Breaks can be caused by excessive force when using the machine or trying to fix a snag in the stitching.


We are currently building our training module for this tool. In the meantime, there are some very helpful [URL| videos] that can help you familiarize yourself with the machine.

Self-training via this wiki, user manuals, or other sources is encouraged but does not substitute for the online training module. Students found using this tool without completing the Canvas training module are subject to disciplinary action which may include termination of Sandbox access. Until a Canvas training module is created, students must work one-on-one with a manager to ensure they are qualified to use this machine
