COVID-19: Media and Maker Commons services

Limited by-appointment services for SFU Instructors only are available in the Media and Maker Commons.

All SFU Libraries are currently closed to in-person use due to the COVID-19 virus.

We continue to offer online and virtual support where possible.

 

The Media and Maker Commons has an embroidery machine for use by active SFU students, faculty, and staff.

Training and getting started

Before using the embroidery machine, you will need to complete online training to learn the minimum skills required to operate the machine.

After this online training, you can also do hands-on training with a member of our staff during which you will review basic principles and gain troubleshooting experience as you work with the machine.

To schedule the machine, book an Embroidery Machine time slot in Canvas. Time slots are available in 60 minute intervals. If you need additional Embroidery Machine time, please contact us.

Please note, All SFU Libraries are currently closed to in-person use due to the COVID-19 virus.  This includes the Media and Maker Commons.  We continue to offer online and virtual support where possible.

Materials and supplies

There are materials and basic equipment available for use, but we recommend bringing in any fabric, notions, sewing scissors or other supplies needed to create your projects. Embroidery thread, machine needles, and bobbin thread are provided by the Maker and Media Commons.

Brother Innov-is NS2750D

The machine available is the Brother Innov-is NS2750D. It is set up to create embroidery designs from the pre-programed library. We will soon make it possible to  create and upload your own designs.

For more information regarding the machine, see the Operation Manual and  FAQs & Troubleshooting.
