How Do I Get Started?

Eni_Chan | Posted in The Archives on

I’ve never picked up a sewing needle before but I love altering my clothing by removing sleeves from a shirt or turning out-dated pants into more fashionable capris. However, I’m spending a small fortune at the tailor’s to make these alterations. I have a simple sewing machine at home and I’d love to learn to do it myself but how? I’ve tried to learn from books but they use terms I’ve never even heard of. The local community college doesn’t have a class on sewing and no one else I know sews either. How do I get started?

    Try sewing machine shops and fabric shops to see if they offer beginner sewing lessons. Many of them do.

      *Many sewing machine shops and fabric stores offer lessons. Call the ones in your area and inquire about lessons for beginners.
