Basics Beginner Sewing
Learn to Sew – Sewing 101
Basics Beginner Sewing gives you an excellent start. Dip that toe into the sewing waters gently. Sometimes those waters can be rough, from choosing your first sewing machine to being bombarded by advertisements for things you apparently MUST have. I have seen many people spend a fortune on books for pattern drafting, before they could even sew a straight line! Don’t do that, ‘Basics for Beginners’ really is just that, all about ‘Basics’.
Where to start on ‘Basics Beginner Sewing’?
I would start with my blog post on sewing machines, followed up with my video about my wonderful Pfaff sewing machine. Before you start sewing, you will likely wonder which patterns are best, so I am giving you my opinion below. It’s based on personal experience and of course not everyone’s is the same. So, your experience might be quite different! If you already have a sewing machine sorted, start on ‘Sewing 101’. This course is free and covers which gadgets you really need, most used seams and methods for closures, such as KamSnaps. Then move on to the presser feet course, which covers a whole lot of sewing machine feet, you might want to use. After a little practice, carry on and choose your first projects.
For all beginners I would highly recommend our Facebook page and Facebook group. The group is monitored all the time, so if you have a question or are stuck, there will be someone that can help. We are an incredibly diverse group of ladies and few gents, that love sewing and support each other.
