20 March 2020 • Sewing Basics 3 Week Course for Beginners

Forget YouTube as your go-to for learning how to sew, instead dive into your sewing escapades with the amazing (and patient) team at Thread Den! I just finished the Sewing Basics 3 Week Course for Beginners and the prospect of sitting at my machine no longer feels overwhelming. I have already been able to sew independently some simple projects, thanks to the guidance and information provided in these workshops. These 3 lessons were exactly what I needed to get started and even just being shown the proper way to set up my machine in a hands on way has been incredibly helpful.

As someone who didn't sew, I was surprised at what I made by the end of the course. The teachers were patient and explained things more than once. It was also fun and a good stress reliever.
