Sewing 101

Since teaching high school and some private sewing lessons for over 10 years, I thought it was time to put all that teaching to good use.  Below are several lessons on sewing basics and techniques.  I promise all ages will be able to enjoy these lessons from kids to adults.

If you are new to sewing, start at the beginning.  If you are just trying to learn a new technique, find the tutorial you are looking for.  Each lesson has tutorials and most have a FREE pattern or two so you can practice a technique.  If you have questions, leave a comment and we will try to answer them.  Happy Sewing!!
