If you have always wanted to learn to sew but there isn’t a local sewing
shop or sewing class near by that meets your schedule perhaps an on-line
sewing class might be right for you. Whether you want to learn how to set
up a sewing machine, make a bobbin, sew pillows and home décor, or start
sewing your very own wardrobe, there are plenty of online sewing classes,
courses, and even colleges offered on the internet.
As exciting and convenient
as an online sewing course may sound, attending sewing classes with an
instructor certainly has its benefits. An online course is not going to be
able to tell you that you have threaded the machine wrong, or that your
pattern piece is not placed on the grain line, or the correct hand
position for sewing. Things like these need to be fixed immediately before
bad habits form.
It’s great to see so many people wanting to learn to sew. It is not taught
in most schools anymore and kids as well as adults have shown a great
interest and excitement in sewing. Our suggestion to those of you out
there who are eager to learn to sew, if at all possible, start with a
sewing class with an instructor at your local fabric shop or sewing
studio. Take one or two classes to get you started and get to know your
sewing machine. Learn the correct pinning, cutting, and handling the
sewing machine methods. Then take off at your own pace and begin online
sewing courses in the convenience of your own time and place.
have been sewing for over 38 years now and every two years I further my
education with an online sewing class. Why? Now matter how old you are,
there’s always something new to learn, and I love learning new things and
keeping my students informed with the newest sewing techniques. Be careful
in which on-line sewing classes you decide on, some are outrageously
priced. Here are some of the online sewing courses
we have had experiences with.
