    Hi dear Aneka,
    I had no idea how to start my machine (Singer) and wind a bobin. I learned it through your video. I have been furiously sweing the past 2 days. After 20 hours of sewing and ripping many stitches open and re-stitching, I have finally made my first dress.
    The most challenging part was the back neck facing. There are no videos anywhere (which are clear) on cowl necks and neck facings. I had to improvise.
    Would you recommend your machine? Does it perform well on all kinds of fabrics? I had lots of problems with tension and the needle. I changed my needle size so many times, until my machine was happy. I have still a long way ahead of me, until I understand what my machine wants for each fabric. But the most difficult thing is to adjust the right tension. It's sooo confusing!
    Thank you for your videos. Please keep them up. Do you a book?
    Do you plan to sew vintage designed dress on video some day?
    Have a nice weekend.
    Dicle (Deegleigh)

  24. TheDicle says:

    By the way. I'm so glad your machines invisible zipper foot is the same like mine. I had no problems in sewing one into my dress.

  25. TheDicle says:

    Dear Aneka, could you recommend a web site if possible, where there are plus sized vintage style dresses? Thank you :-)

  26. Jan Lukeš says:

    I really like this series, the video and sound quality makes it nice to watch. Thank you.

  27. neaumusic says:

  28. Sara Alsaleh says:

    Thank you for making this so easy and obvious !!! <3 You're the best !!

  29. GREAT tutorials! Thank you!

  30. GRACE Jones says:

    fabulous instructions. so very very clear. thank you very much indeed. im sure i cant go wrong.

  31. Great video, thank you for sharing!

  32. How can you teach how to use a sewing machine to beginners when most sewing machines are different?!

  33. VideoNOLA says:

    10:25 No mention yet of the foot pedal's existence, so true beginners may wonder what magic has caused the machine to engage here. :-)

  34. Can you recommend a good beginner sewing machine? I have done lots of research, but I keeps winding up with bad reviews of everything. I would prefer a non-computerized one. Thanks of any suggestions.

  35. thank you so much I've been looking into starting to learn how to sew and this is so easy to follow

  36. Amina Sullen says:

    Thank you so much!

    The absolute best video on YouTube! I'm so glad I found you. I just opened up an old Kenmore machine someone gave me with no manual and have been fumbling around, trying to figure out how to do something I've never done before. Although I'm still having trouble with the bobbin (I've broken 3 needles in 4 hours) I'm looking forward to your next videos. If you still get notifications for this post I'd like to ask you if you can tell me what I'm doing wrong on my particular machine. Thanks!!

  38. Thank you so much! Very easy to follow and understand. Waiting until tomorrow when hubby and kids are out to have a go!
