I think learning to sew is one of the best things I’ve ever done creatively. I love the challenges it presents, I love the people I’ve met along the way and I love what I can do with fabric and color and the inspiration it gives me. And, I love the feeling I get when all the stars align and I make something so beautiful I actually dance for joy. No kidding. Sewing gives me so much pleasure and joy it’s hard to explain.
If I hear that someone wants to learn how to sew, I practically fall over myself in giving them help and assisting them on their journey. Sewing is such an amazing creative outlet for me.
I also want to tell you we’ve got a great intro to sewing course that is great for beginners. We all have to start at the beginning! Let’s look at my reasons for sewing, plus a peek into what you can learn in the class.
Reason 1: Sewing can save you money.
Making garments, crafts or accessories can save you a lot of money compared to buying at your favorite store. In the Garment Sewing Introduction course, you’ll first learn all the basics of your machine, supplies and start sewing seams. In week 2 Seams and Finishes is what we’ll take on.
Reason 2: Learn to sew means you can make tons of one-of-a-kind accessories, tote bags, purses, scarves and more!
Reason 3: Sewing shows off your creative side.
No other hobby lets you show your true individuality like sewing. If you love polka dots and want to wear only polka dots sewing lets you do just that. Go crazy! As you move through the class in weeks 5 you’ll learn the basics of fabric and how to pick the right fabric for the project. In week 6 you’ll learn how to read and use a sewing pattern. Very important that one!
Reason 4: Learn to create garments you see on the runway.
This is why I love to sew. I can create almost anything I see on the runway in a department store or boutique. Plus, if you have a hard to shop for figure, sewing can be so liberating. Week 7 you’ll learn how to make a skirt and week 8 you’ll learn about different styles of skirts. Trust me, this is going to be fun. Skirts are one of my all time favorite things to sew. You will love it.
Reason 5: Sewing reduces stress.
Sure, learning any thing new has its stressful moments, but as a long time sewer I can’t tell you how rewarding sewing has been to my life. I’ve met so many wonderful people, continuing to learn and grown AND, have a pretty, nice wardrobe.
If you would like to start your journey I would love to be a part of it.
