Coming Soon: School of Sewing!

School of Sewing, learn to sew, beginner sewing book

Big news to share today! My first book, School of Sewing: Learn it. Teach it. Sew Together. will come out in September!

Published by Lucky Spool Media, it is a book for the true beginner or those looking to teach a true beginner. There is machine buying advice, the what and why of sewing supplies, a detailed troubleshooting section and it’s filled quotes from actual beginners and I think that is my favorite part. It includes the storyline of my group of eight students who have been learning over the course of the last year!

My greatest hope is that not only will beginners pick up this book, but also experienced sewists looking to teach a friend, neighbor or co-worker to love our craft. The book is designed to tackle one project a month with each building on the skills learned in the previous lesson. The projects are functional, gift-able, and (with the exception of one project) can be made in one class!

This book is packed with info and is beautifully photographed by the ever so talented Lauren Hunt. It’s sophisticated and crazy informative and I can’t wait to show and share more!

    I don’t even know the way I ended up right here, however I assumed
    this publish was once great. I do not know who you might be however
    certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already.
