    I think it is wonderful, fantastic and terrific that you are offering a beginning sewing course for free on-line. I learned to sew when I was 12, some 47 years ago (feels like 10 LOL). I genuinely admire you and wish you the best of luck and fortune in the future. Here’s to the future generation of creative minds!

  6. I love your blog! Thanks for sharing!
