Update: If you are looking for a specific post in this series, you can find all the posts organized here
I am really excited about this series! I can’t tell you how many times people tell me, “I wish I could sew like you.” Probably about 99.9% of the time, they don’t believe me when I tell them, “You can!” Sewing isn’t a talent. It’s a life skill, and with practice and determination anyone can do it! Are there going to be people who it comes easier to?? Sure! But that’s true of anything!
In this series, I am going to walk you through step by step using both written and video tutorials, and show you that YOU CAN SEW!!! Below is an outline of topics that will be covered. This is just an outline, and I will make adjustments as we walk through the series based on questions and feedback from you, so please feel free to make suggestions and ask questions! I would appreciate if you would ask all questions in the comment section, so that everyone can benefit. Also, please notice, that all of my posts are print friendly, so if you would like to print out any info and/or tutorials you can easily do it by using the button at the bottom of my posts!

And since practice is the best way to learn, once we have gone over all the topics, I will be sharing some free patterns, that we will use to do sew alongs! So if you have any requests, now is the time to let me know because I am getting started on designing the patterns this week.
I think that should just about cover it. If I missed anything, please let me know in the comments sections.
Oh! And if you plan on joining us, please grab a sewing school button from the sidebar and share it on your blog or share this post on your FB and/or Twitter to help me spread the word!
