    i notice the videos are now unavailable, wondered if you would put a note on the site perhaps saying why
    and when they will be avaiable once more.

    It's great to see FREE instructional information. I'm never too old to learn, and I have a lot to learn! :-)

    Where can I find waxed tracing paper like the kind used in the video?

    I think this a great idea. Learning to sew again after many
    years of forgetting some rules of how to sew.
