How to Get Started with Sewing

I’ve included some great tutorials below to walk you through the basics of sewing if you are newbie or to use them as a refresher if it has been awhile! If you are brand new to machine sewing it is probably a good idea to sit down with your specific machine manual and get familiar with how to thread it, set the tensions, and familiarize yourself with the different settings. If it feels too overwhelming, I suggest that you find someone who is an experienced machine sewer and ask if they can guide you through the first few attempts. Many sewing shops also offer beginner classes so you can certainly try to locate one in your area to attend. It really is worth it. The primers below are handy for reviewing during any project we complete, so don’t hesitate to use them!
