What Our Students Are Saying...
“The course is very comprehensive and basic. I didn't get confused with a lot of technical talk/language, which made the course easy to follow." ~Lena
“Easy to follow instructions with video for those of us that are visual learners. Also the community behind it that helps you along, gives you encouragement and asks the questions you are too shy to ask…. I was petrified of zips and this gently allowed me to have a go and when I succeeded I did a happy dance!.” ~Julie
“It was a good refresher on things I already knew from past years, informative on things I hadn't learned.” ~Krys
“It's given me something to focus on with everything thing going on around us. I've regained a skill and re-found my love for sewing.” ~Julie

Beginner Sewing Project
Simple, beginner sewing projects to help practice new sewing techniques.
The first pair of pajama pants I ever made, I couldn't even wear. I had sewn the two back pieces together and the directional print was upside down. I was frustrated, annoyed and my confidence took a little hit. After a little self imposed time out, I realized that, no, I couldn't wear those pajama pants, but I could learn from my silly sewing mistakes. And that is just what I did.
Over the next several years, I would sew projects and embrace the mistakes. I recognized that those mistakes were learning opportunities, a way to improve my sewing. The more mistakes I made, the more I learned, and the more my confidence in my skills improved.
Today, I take the sewing mistakes I've made and teach others, like you, how to avoid them and even embrace them. I am here to help you find the confidence to sew something new, make mistakes and be proud of your progress.
