Have you dreamed of how great it would be to incorporate sewing into your artwork (or even just hem a pair of pants)? Starting to sew is easily achievable. You won’t be making your first fiber art masterpiece overnight, but beginning with a simple project will help you feel accomplished and encourage you to continue. I learned to sew about 25 years ago and started teaching others how to do it just over 10 years ago. I have taught children and adults in private lessons and group classes, at birthday parties and, ever since Covid, in virtual classes as well. We always start with an easy project that can be completed in a few hours, like a set of napkins or a tote bag.
