Learn to Sew Series
When you first learn to sew, it’s easy to be eager and want to sew “all the things”. But to be successful at sewing, it really, really, really helps to master the basics first.
So that’s exactly where we’ll start – learning the basics. And I’ll be right here to help guide you, answer your questions and encourage you along the way.
Will there be more Learn to Sew lessons?
You betcha! Like I said, Hooked on Sewing is a brand new website created with the idea of helping people just like you to learn how to sew. Sewing should be a hobby or skill that you enjoy. So, let’s overcome whatever’s holding you back and put the fun in sewing together!
What if I have questions?
Ask away! You can post your questions in the comments section below, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your questions in the Sewing is Fun Facebook Group.
Will you have video tutorials?
Yes! There will be video tutorials whenever possible to supplement the lessons, tips, tutorials and patterns! Please feel free to subscribe to my YouTube Channel too!
How do I use the Learn to Sew series?
Step 1: Start at the Beginning
For the best results, I recommend you start with lesson #1 – selecting your sewing machine. Even if you’ve already purchased your machine, reviewing the lesson may help you better understand the features and functionalities in a sewing machine.
Step 2: Print Each Lesson Guide
Go through each lesson one at a time and be sure to print out the guides or free printables that accompany most lessons. Once you have the guides printed out, I recommend you 3-hole punch them and keep them all together in a 3-ring binder.
You’ll also find a Notes page with each guide. Feel free to use this page to take any helpful notes.
Step 3: Watch the Videos
Most lessons also have an accompanying video. Be sure to watch each video. I recommend you have your lesson guide already printed out so you can follow along and take any notes.
Step 4: Get Support / Ask Questions
I’ve created a Facebook Group called Sewing is Fun (because it should be, right?). Please come join the Sewing is Fun Facebook Group, where you can ask questions, get support, receive encouragement, and be inspired by other aspiring sewists. It truly is a lifetime journey and we never stop learning!
What supplies or tools do I need to learn to sew?
I’m glad you asked! You can read all about my essential sewing tools for beginners here, but all you really need to get started are the following:
- sewing machine
- all-purpose thread
- wound bobbin (or prewound bobbins) – bobbins come in different sizes; refer to your sewing machine manual
- fabric scissors
- cotton fabric
- sewing machine manual (extremely helpful)
These are just a few of the lessons you’ll learn in this Learn to Sew series from Hooked on Sewing. There are MANY more and I’m constantly adding new lessons.
