Sewing ABCsStreaming Video - 2007
Learning to sew is as simple as reciting the ABCs with this easy-to-follow demonstration. Viewers learn to begin sewing projects with a positive attitude and to buy all fabric and notions before starting a project. They see the importance of checking supplies on hand and collecting all tools and equipment before beginning to sew. These basic sewing principles help viewers select a pattern, use the information on the pattern envelope and inside guide sheet, and use the pattern they select. Both novice and experienced sewers will benefit from the demonstrations of basic sewing techniques. Viewers learn about elastic waistbands, side pockets, and hems on simple shorts, skirts, and pants; facings, interfacing, darts, and seam finishes for tops and blouses; and zipper application, pleats, waistband, fasteners, and hems for basic skirts. Close-ups make each of these procedures come alive as viewers learn techniques they can apply to future sewing projects.
