Getting ready to sew is very important. Take time to consider your sewing room and the equipment you are going to use. One of the things I cover with beginner sewers are some of the essential sewing equipment like a small hand seam gauge, tape measure, scissors, markers, pins, needles and a seam magnetic gauge.
Learn to sew at Jenny’s Sewing Studio. Learn to thread your machine, use the straight stitch to make a 5/8″ and 1/4″ seam. Next make a pin cushion, make a zipper bag and then take time to measure so you pick the right size pattern. We will send the rest of the class making a project using a commercial pattern. When you finish you should know how to layout a pattern, cut out your pattern and mark the sewing guides. We will construct the project from start to finish by reading the guide sheet.
