We’ve already established here I am not a natural born seamstress, but how hard could this be – right? After all, I’m a grown woman now. I am a college graduate, can read, know how to use scissors, and have this pretty new sewing machine. Let the fun begin!
Now let me see….a beginner’s manual might be a good idea in case I get stuck. My favorite fabric shop offers several guides for beginners, but which one is written at my level of sewing knowledge? Maybe it would be a good idea to borrow some guides from the library before making a purchase. Good thinking!
So far, all of these guides look like they are written in Greek. I don’t speak Greek.
But wait! There’s Sewing for Dummies on the shelf. I picked it up, flipped through it, and instantly felt like...like...what's dummer than dummies?
Remember the time you sewed your fabric to your dress? Auntie Mare’s words were ringing in my head.
Then, an aha moment…eBay! You can find anything on eBay. Sure enough, within a few short moments I purchased two guides that are written at my level of sewing knowledge.
This is going to be great!
