New to Sewing ? Want to learn how to sew ? Believe it or not, I envy you ! You have a huge new world of adventure before you :) So many choices, fun new styles, great online resources, wonderful books and magazines… I would love to take you to the fabric store and watch your eyes light up !

I have taught beginning sewing to small groups. It is a pleasure to guide someone through their initial sewing project as they use their shiny, new seam ripper and fun colored thimble. How awesome to be part of the first finished project and see that satisfied smile :)

These are not boring, Jr. High School items. They are fresh ideas and can be made from a variety of fabrics; either new from the fabric store or upcycled from the back of your closet. Free patterns and Instructions !

I picked ones I enjoyed reading; most have detailed instructions with helpful photos showing you the way  step-by-step. I would love to hear from you what ones you like in particular. Please feel free to add to this list ! Let’s share good resources and pass the love of sewing on~
