I learned threw 4-H and my grandmother. There are some great classes that teach you the basic's that are needed.
I figured out some of the basic stuff on my own. As I go I just look things up online.
I taught myself. I look up stuff online that I'm not sure about...for example, lol, when I first started sewing, I saw mention of a seam ripper, I didn't know what that was, so when I messed up, I literally ripped my fabric apart, and thought...of I get it, seam ripper! lol
Not so much. lol.
My Mother and Grandmother taught me some. But I learned the most in my sewing classes in Junior High and High school.
I'm mostly self taught. I got a basic sewing machine and had someone show me how everything worked, then from there I used online tutorials for projects and basic stitches, then worked up to using patterns. Some bloggers are really good about pictures and instructions and that helps a lot. I would suggest maybe a sewing class just to get the basic idea of how the machine works and how to troubleshoot basic issues.
i learned through school and my mom. i still call her a lot though. :)
is there an older woman you could reach out to for help? i think you would learn a lot more from a one on one session. and she would probably be thrilled to help.
I want to take a class once I can be away from ds long enough.
My mom taught me. We had to sew something every summer when I was growing up.
My mom TRIED to teach me :)
