You’ve come to the right place if you want to learn how to sew or enhance your sewing skills. Do you need help in real time? I provide sewing lessons for you online. Level 1 Start: For someone new to Sewing, who has never sewn before nor used a sewing machine, your first lesson will be learning your sewing machine. Threading, bobbin, stitches, functions. You will also learn how to sew on scrap fabric. One hour. Level 2 Start: A sewing beginner, someone who has sewn before but not much. If you already possess the skills and level one, then you start at level two. In this session you will learn to make a pillowcase or a tote bag. You will get more comfortable with the machine, controlling the speed, stitching within a seam allowance, and stitching a straight line. This could take 1 to 2 sewing hours. Level 3 Start: Student possesses the abilities and skills in level one and two. At level three, you have already sewn something basic like a pillow, pillowcase or tote bag. At this level I allow you to choose your pattern for what you’d like to make. Pattern choice will be an "easy to sew" pattern of something that you like to make. Depending on the pattern, this could take 2 to 4 sewing sessions. Level four. You’re really sewing now! This is where you will choose a more difficult pattern with something specific that you’d like to learn. It will take 2 to 5 sewing sessions depending on pattern difficulty.
