Live sewing demonstrations!

I’ve been asked recently for some links to my demonstrations on Sewing Quarter, so, I thought it would be helpful to put together this blog post including links straight to the Youtube videos. The beauty of learning this way is that you can hit pause when it suits. Trust me, I know, having learned how to fit kitchen plinths from a Youtube video recently!

I’ve picked out what I think are some of the most useful sewing techniques which can be related to a huge range of projects. I love sharing my skills and I get a real buzz out of seeing photos of the beautiful creations shared by my students and viewers of the programme.
