Maker Hub’s ‘Tool Tip Friday’: Consew Sewing Machine

Thursday, September 29th, 2022

Is that small sewing kit your parents sent you to college with not cutting in anymore? Have no fear, the Maker Hub has multiple machines to solve your sewing needs, including the Consew Sewing Machine.

The Maker Hub’s Consew Sewing Machine sets itself apart by being able to sew through light to heavy weight materials such as leather, vinyl, and canvas. While it was originally designed for stitch upholstery and sails, it is helpful for making leather goods or bags. To see it in action, check out this video.

The Maker Hub exists as a resource and creative outlet for the entire George Fox community (yes, including non-engineers!). We are looking for student aces. A student ace is simply an expert on a piece of equipment who helps train other students on the usage of that equipment and gains extra privileges within the Maker Hub.

Please email makerhub@georgefox.edu if you would like to get connected or have any questions.
