Is an Online Sewing Course Right For Me

In Studio Sewing Classes vs. Online Sewing Courses

Is an online sewing course right for me. On-line sewing classes.


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.

I 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.

Penn Foster Career School  Formerly Thomson Education Direct  Stratford Career Institute

Academy of Art University Online Fashion Courses
If you are more serious than taking a sewing class on-line or at a studio, and are looking into the Fashion Industry, we highly suggest you checking out The Art Institute. They offer both Fashion Design and Fashion Management degrees, and have locations throughout the U.S.. You can also check out our page Schools of Fashion Design, where our director of the studio spent many hours checking out different colleges, their locations, what they offer, and their fees.
