I have this theory that anyone can learn to sew if they are given the right pattern. So many people want to learn to sew, dive in headfirst to the wrong kind of project, and end up feeling defeated and discouraged. As a self taught seamstress, I went through my own struggles learning how to do things, then learning again how to do things the RIGHT way. I am still learning, everyday, and one of my greatest joys is helping people find the right tools to grow in their skills. I recently posted in a local mom's group that I would give a free intro to sewing lesson to one person who was willing to be my guinea pig and help me test my theory. I was inundated with responses from women who wanted to learn, some who had tried before and failed, and many who even owned their own machines but had no clue how to use them.Read More
