Finding a sewing course if you are a beginner, can be daunting. At Frocks & Frolics this is made fun and easy,  partly because a lot of them are free and partly because there is a videos sewing course for every product. This  makes following the video instructions in the sewing course a breeze.  Best of all, following a free beginner sewing course, will bump up your skill level, in no time at all. One of my favorite little course is ‘All about Fabrics & Fibres‘. Knowing your fabrics is absolutely fundamental to making a really nice product. I also have a super ‘guide to knit fabrics’ for you. Make sure you download the guide, it includes the elusive weight definitions for knit! You should also check out the blog post on sewing machines, sewing machine feet and generally have a little mooch around.
