Great For Beginners

I've been sewing for quite a while now but it is good to review Amy's good habits, and the class is still valuable to me whilst being explicit enough for a beginner.

Two Thumbs Up ????

Wonderful class and instructor. I just bought a new sewing machine and it has similar features. The explanations given here are very helpful as I learn how to use my new machine.

Good Material, Comprehensive and Clear.

This is a great basic video---sure wish I had had this when I first learned to so. Very knowledgeable, pleasant presenter.

Great introduction to Sewing Machines

I really enjoyed this course and thought there was a lot of good information given in the different sections. The explanations were very clear, and I liked the way that the tutor explained WHY you did it a certain way and what would happen if you didn't. The section on cleaning was fun as it was nice to see the insides of a machine, and again builds confidence before you have to go and do it.
