FREE SEW … The Garment-Making Book of Knowledge Real-Life Lessons from a Serial Sewist Book:
Everything your mother would tell you about sewing if your mother could sew

Experienced sewing instructor and blogger Barbara Emodi shares her sewing wisdom to help readers get started, get started back up, or hone their existing garment-sewing skills. Not a sewing reference book as much as a book of experience, this is a book that will make a novice sewist say, “Oh, so that’s why you do that,” make a practiced sewist think, “Now that’s a neat trick,” and make a very experienced sewist smile and say, “That is sooo true!” Take advantage of her thoughts, tips, and tricks on the benefits of sewing, the importance of fit, basic techniques, available tools, patterns, and materials, and so much more.

For a more detailed summary of each class included in this set, see the “Classes Included” tab below.

NOTE: After purchase, all individual classes within this set will be made available in your Craftsy account. You will be able to enjoy your purchased classes within your library anytime without losing access. The book will be shipped to you.
