I have been sewing for 55 years. I teach first time sewing students with little or no experience. In the first lesson I will go over basic sewing, fabric, reading a pattern and the sewing machine. The second lesson we will make a reversible tote bag. The third lesson we will make a pillow case. And the forth lesson you will buy a pattern and we will make a pair of pajama pants. I also make and sell American Girl doll clothes. I live with my daughter and her family. We just moved here form California where we had a retail doll clothes store and gave sewing lessons.
