Sailrite's Learning to Sew Series

If you missed the first six lessons in this series, we encourage you to go back to the beginning and catch up. Part 1 (#200627XHT) is all about how to set up a sewing machine, wind a bobbin and thread your machine. We start sewing in Part 2 (#200626XHT) and go over how to create a stitch. Continue on and learn how to sew basic seams, how to hem raw fabric edges and bind fabric, and how to install a zipper and sew piping.

In this seventh and final installment of the Learning to Sew Series we’re going to share with you our favorite beginner sewing tools and notions. Items like a tape measure, marking pencil, quality fabric scissors, thread snips and more are key to beginning your first project and ensuring you have everything you need to get started on your sewing journey.
