This class covers all you need to know to get started sewing with your new sewing machine or enhance your knowledge to get the best from the machine you have. Using two different machines, Gill shows you how to identify the different parts of your sewing machine, how to select the right needles and threads for your projects. Gill explains tension simply so that you are able to solve your own tension issues. Gill covers the stitches and needles needed for successful sewing with woven and stretch fabric and how to create consistently accurate seams and demonstrates how to create blind hems and buttonholes. This 110 minute, 10 chapter video tutorial is accompanied by a 10-page document summarising the video content.
