Shea Henderson, Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio and School of Sewing

Hi! I’m Shea Henderson, pattern designer and author of School of Sewing. Welcome!

My book, School of Sewing: Learn it. Teach it. Sew Together. is part beginner sewing book, part sewing teaching tool and part narrative. It follows my eight friends, neighbors and co-workers as I taught them to use their sewing machines. School of Sewing is designed to be used as a tool for teaching yourself or someone you know how to sew! Even experienced sewists are finding countless new tips and tricks within the pages of the book.

About the book:

School of Sewing allows you to follow in the footsteps of a group of beginners who shared one goal- to learn to use their sewing machines. This book is an engaging, detailed lesson plan designed to guide you along that same journey, whether you are learning alone or as a group. It begins with easy-to-follow instructions for how to use a sewing machine and advice on buying fabric and tools and then progresses through 12 projects— one three-hour lesson a month, perfect for friends to learn together. Your own School of Sewing will be proud to show off or to gift these trendy projects, which include a pillowcase, zippered pouch, tote bag, and patchwork quilt, each with optional details for “extra credit.”
