I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been releasing lots of video tutorials lately. It’s a new crazy idea I have, and I hope you guys are going to love it.
Basically I want to make a sewing class, but instead of boring lessons, there will just be a library of fun projects that, when followed in order, build on each other to, gradually adding skills to the maker. We are starting at the very beginning. (I’ve been releasing No Sew projects to help people get used to following a pattern and working with fabric in general. I will start adding simple straight seams to my next projects.)
My hope is to make projects that are educational for the beginning sewist, but also cute enough that someone with more experience would still be tempted.
And here’s the craziest part of the project…
I want them to be free.
My mom taught me to sew growing up and it was such a wonderful gift. The precious gift of craft has been handed down from person to person for centuries and I love the connection that brings. I also love the idea of teaching a useful skill to someone regardless of income level.
Making patterns is, however, my job… so to offer them for free, I need put advertisements on them. And to put ads on my video tutorials, YouTube requires I have 1,000 subscribers to my channel.
So get ready because this is the part where I openly beg for your help…
(was that in your face enough???)
Thank so much for listening to my crazy ideas! I have so many great designs working up over here that I will hopefully be sharing with you very soon.
