I have a conundrum, and I’m hoping you can help me with it.
I have a beautiful sewing machine that my husband (then boyfriend) bought me a few years ago. It’s perfect, decent-quality, and it’s been used about twice (and by him). I love it; it was exactly what I wanted at the time.
The problem is, I’m bad at sewing. I don’t mean comically bad. Tim Gunn would have a heart attack if he saw my sewing skills. I’m disastrous. Despite that, I still have this strong urge to sew!
I want to make my own clothes and maybe quilt a little. I would like to be able to use a sewing machine for my steeks as I’m hoping to eventually knit more sweaters in the future. Some knit projects need linings. I’d like to not be limited away from those because I can’t sew. I want to make our home decor, like pillows for our sofa. See? I really want this!
So, here’s my question:
Do you know of any online courses that are really good at teaching a newbie to sew?
It doesn’t necessarily have to be free. I’m willing to pay if the class is well taught. I can’t really go anywhere (other than online) to learn because we have one vehicle, which is usually with the husband. Online is my best bet.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
