Today we are SO excited to share our latest e-course with you—Sew with Us!
Rachel Denbow and Katie Shelton have been developing this course for nearly a year now. Our goal has been to create an easy-to-understand practical guide to sewing beautiful home decor and pretty fashion projects for yourself. The course is taught through text, step-by-step photos, and four videos that teach different skills throughout the course.
You can read the full details about the course here, including a description of all 25 original lessons (and a bonus!), but here are a few highlights. If you feel you need to start from the beginning, you’ll find lessons on getting familiar with your machine (including a video tutorial for threading shown on two different types of home sewing machines), sewing feet, basic stitches, and a quick guide to fabrics. If you feel you’re ready to move past the basics and get into the projects, you can dive right in and learn to make your own clothing (with patterns or from making your own pattern!), throw pillows, curtains, pillow cases, sleeping bags, how to add different kinds of zippers and much more! By the time you’ve made it through all the lessons, you’ll be feeling like a pro.
You’ll also learn practical and useful skills like how to make your own bias tape and how to alter clothing to fit YOU. The course also encourages you to get creative with your fabric choices, and we have an entire lesson dedicated to showing you how to hand-stamp textiles so you can personalize any project.
Sew with Us is offered at $45 USD. But, we wanted to find a way to reward our loyal e-course readers. For the first two weeks (until April 8th), we’re offering the course at $30 USD—so you can save $15 just by purchasing now. Don’t miss out on this discount if you’re interested in taking your skills to the next level.
Check out the full description of the course for more information, and if you have any questions, feel free to email us or leave us a comment below. Thank you for your support, and we hope that you will choose to come sew with us this spring! xo. The ABM Team
