My teaching style is pretty relaxed, which I think really helps to ensure each of my students, whatever your age, will successfully sew every garment with confidence and ease. I know fitting plays a large part in sewing, but it shouldn’t hinder you from getting started. That’s why I concentrate on demonstrating all aspects of sewing and garment construction from beginning to advanced.
Andrea, I enjoyed reading this about you! No wonder all your clothing looks so polished and professional--you are a master! I look forward to all your blog posts! I may not have time to comment on each one, I still devour your words and photos!ReplyDelete
A fellow sewist! Sue :)
Wow!!! Thank you so much Sue. I know it is hard to always comment and say something, but I do know you are there. Pattern Review is always were we see each other. I am on Periscope now, as well as YouTube. That way you will get a really good serving of my fun teaching perspective. Thanks for continuing to join me on this journey.Delete
wow. I'm am now full of new information about sewing! Thankyou. I love your videos. I enjoy laughing with you, and I'm so excited to finally understand how to sew stuff that fits me, and my daughter. Like Sue, above, I don't usually comment. Just wanted to let you know that you are doing a good thing!ReplyDelete
Well, Clair thank you very much for such a nice comment. I certainly need to hear these testimonies occasionally. Welcome to my page.Delete
Hi! Any chance you would be willing to make a pattern from an existing dress for a little girl, and turn it into a pattern for sizes from little girl to teenage girl? How much would you charge to do that for me?ReplyDelete
Hi Andrea -- I found your blog from watching an old Sewing Blab video. . I see you went to HCC, but I think I hear a little south Louisiana in your voice. .am I right? You sound like home. .anyways. .I'll be reading your blog and and watching your videos. .take care and God bless. .ReplyDelete
Hi Andrea- I read in a post that you have the Bernina 780. I really need your help. I just don'nt know what else to do with this machine. I am making a baby onesie from a jersey fabric and the stiches looks really bad, the needle breaks also. I take the right needle but it dosen't work well. The fabrix sometimes get stuck... can you help me please? Do I have to change the setting I traid that but it doesen't work either. I would be so happy to hear a respond from you. Thank youReplyDelete
I have been watching your really helpful video concerning adding larger sizes to patterns. How should I measure when each size variation increase measures larger than the last? In other words, the increases are not equal measurements? I have subscribed to your YouTube site and look forward to improving my sewing skills!
Many Thanks, Carol
