i have been sewing for man yrs off and on but still learnt from this class well worth watching, no mater what you skill level i bet theres something you didnt know or have a bad habit that you have, its pointed out you think " oops guilty as charged " and start to do it the right way again

Great class for beginners. Helps you learn your machine and how to take care of it.

Never to old to learn

I have been sewing some 50+ years on and off and found a lot of valuable information on this class. Great teacher and thank you so much Craftsy for providing this!

So Clear!

I wish I had just watched this video instead of taking beginners sewing at my local fabric store. I had this reoccurring problem where my machine would jam up, nobody ever explained to me to HOLD THE THREADS for the first few stitches.
Really excited and confident to continue!
