Learning to sew your own clothes is more important now than ever.  With more stores selling online and department stores selling “disposable” clothes it’s hard just finding a decent pair of pants or a t-shirt that even comes close to fitting.  Finding fabric to make our clothes is easier than finding the garments!

Quickly learn to sew by mastering the fundamentals of sewing. Specific techniques will allow you to increase your skill levels. Make the clothes you want to wear!
