Re: Win Seasons 1 & 2 of Teach Yourself to Sew on DVD

I haven't sewn much for 20+ years. Years ago I was pretty good at clothing and went into machine quilting. Recently I have found dozens of young women ages 20-40 in our church that do not know how to sew at all and I've been showing them some things, trying to make it fun. However, I'm unsure of my own skills and would like to continue to teach them. At this point, I've been doing the project and then teaching them. What surprised me was they didn't know how to thread a machine much less sew a straight seam... so we're backing up and starting slower. I have read a couple of your magainzes and have really been inspired. I have used some creative ideas as bait to get them to want to embelish their own clothing while learning to sew. Fun! Fun!
