Excellent Basics Class

I knew much of the info given, but I highly recommend this class to a beginner. It's also always good to see if I can learn additional ways of doing specific things.

Sewing Machine Basics

I really enjoyed this class and followed along with Amy as she cleaned her machine. Good information. Printed out the class materials too. Been sewing for years yet happy I watched.
