Sew Ready: Machine Basics

rated 5 stars


After receiving a sewing machine as a gift, I decided to learn properly how to use it. I can't imagine a better course than this. I learned everything I needed and more! I feel prepared for any challenges that lie ahead. Thank you!

Great Refresher

I've been seeing for many years, but I've never received any formal instruction. This was awesome! Amy is really nice and goes over some fundamental obvious things that a lot of people just don't know. Even experienced sewers! I don't have the machine that she uses but mine seems to be designed relatively similar (as do many other 'new' machines). I plan on watching more of Amy's classes.
