Monthly Livestream Sewing Class – Free

Once a month, join me in my sewing studio for free livestream sewing class where we will follow a (free) sewing pattern to sew a clothing project from start to finish. You can even ask questions, while it's happening! 

You can sew with me during the livestream or just watch and make the project later. I'll post the recording each week on our Youtube channel. This is a great way to get started learning to sew in our online sewing classes.

If you'll be making the project with me during the livestream, do the following BEFORE the livestream: 

  • Download the project pattern & tape it together - We'll cut the fabric together in the class.
  • Gather all your tools (see below)
  • Gather your supplies needed for the specific project we'll be making (below)
  • Have all our tools & supplies ready for when the livestream begins.
