    Default Learning to sew

    Ladies I am interested in learning to sew. I have no idea can't hemp or repair buttons for the life of me. Has anyone learnt before or know of one on one classes or group classes. I would love to get a sewing machine and know how to use it!

    Try your local spotlight store. They may have classes.

    Most of the independent sewing stores have classes - they start at the very beginning. I know our local spotlight doesn't do classes.

    I have to say I pretty much bought a machine and taught myself. Looked up how to do a lot of things ... but trial and error was a lot of it.

    Have made some pretty great things along the way, and the sense of accomplishment when you make something good is amazing

    YouTube is an amazing teacher! Two years ago I could barely run a hem... Three weeks ago I finished quilting bub's baby blanket, a matching pillow case and change mat cover! Just start, you won't regret it!

    Thanks for all the replies I am definitely going to look into it. I think I need classes as I am really that hopeless!
