Learn to Sew: A New Series

So, you’ve watched Project Runway for years now.

You marvel at the haute couture creations of the young seamstress in the series, The Time in Between by María Dueñas.

You run your hands over beautiful textiles as you wander through fabric shops imagining what you could make if you only knew how to sew.


Maybe you even opened a beautiful new sewing machine on Christmas morning.


Now what? Where do you start? What else will you need to buy? How will you get that sewing machine up and running?

Well, grab my hand and come with me to my new sewing series, Learn to Sew where together we’ll get your machine up and running, get you the tools you need, master the basic stitches, crack the pattern code, create a few simple projects to get you started and before you know it, you’ll be making your own fabric treasures. 🙂

Once you get a taste of how much fun sewing can be, I promise, you’ll never look back.


If you’d like to learn to sew or know someone who would, click here for the first free episode: Essential Sewing Tools.

I hope you enjoy this new series and as an added bonus, if you make a comment over at eHow and pin the Essential Sewing Tools  article to one of your Pinterest boards, your name will be entered to win a copy of The Refashion Handbook.


The winner will be announced next week.

Happy Sewing!

    This is a great idea, Beth. My daughter is a budding seamstress; I will alert her to your new series and will enjoy reading it along with her 🙂

  3. Hi! There a few things I would like to learn. May I share? How to make fingerless lace gloves, gorgeous cashmere deep edged lace scarves (like Victorian Trading-I bout both @200!) easy to do but fabulous winter hats- if you must ruin your hair….. The bet and quickest way to take in gathered too big… elastic and stitches to take to waist in? When thrifting most things don’t fit but I adore the look of longer skirts and boots, a beret with boiled wool flowers. a designer bag….

  4. I just love all of your awesome remakes! I look forward to your post every week! You work wonders on all of your remakes! Thank you so much for all of your sewing tips and tutorials!

    Just love your suggestions and refashions.
    Failed sewing at high school and have just come to appreciate its wonders at the ripe old age of 50.
    Enjoying the refashioning experience. Enjoying the trawling through second-hand shops.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
    Thanks for starting at the beginning!

  7. Yes please, and thank you!

    Hi Beth,
    This is a great idea and I look forward to following along. I have been sewing off and on since I was in high school and love to learn and be inspired from your recycle projects.

  9. I love to hand sew but always dread getting out my sewing machine. I do get a little excited though when I read your how- tos and think I can do that! I think I’ll be following along!

    • It’ll make all of my work worth it if this new series makes you comfortable with your sewing machine and craving to sew more and more with it. I’m so happy that you’ll be joining in on this new sewing adventure with us!
