Description

This course follows the same format that I have used to teach hundreds of people how to sew in my studio, fabric stores and schools for over 15 years.

We’re starting right from the beginning, so don’t worry if you’ve never sewn before. And if you’ve been sewing for a while, but without much guidance or without a strong technical focus, I’m sure you’ll notice your skills and your finished projects improve significantly.

We’ll start by taking a quick look at the sewing machine and some of the tools used in sewing. You’ll learn various stitches and seam finishes and, of course, we’ll have lots of time to sew! By the end of the course, you will feel confident enough to begin tackling some of those projects you’ve been dreaming about!

I really enjoyed this course, I went from knowing nothing about sewing on a sewing machine to opening a small business. I truly enjoyed every excercise the instructor provided. I only wish she could create an intermediate or advanced level in the future, I would defenitely take it.

Ironing

2 Lectures



05:40

It may come as a shock to you that ironing is a very important part of sewing. I would say proper ironing technique is just as important as your sewing technique.

Pressing sets your stitches and flattens out your seam allowances, making your finished projects more polished and crisp. So make friends with your iron and the special pressing tools.
