  1. Niler Taylor says:

    The entire beginner sewing class is on one dvd. It's about 2 hours long.


  2. Can you show us how to make a pair of insulated fleece gloves and a good pair of leather gloves?

  3. Niler Taylor says:

    Wow…you don't ask for much do you…LOL! I've never had a request like this, but I will add it to my list. I will have better success with the fleece gloves than the leather gloves. Follow the patter for the fleece to use as the leather gloves. Thanks for your request and for watching my vidoes.


  4. The reason being is my husband and kids go through gloves , scraves and hats every winter . We live in Long Island, NY and it is extremely cold here!!!

  5. We just got done with 30 inches of snow. P.S. my son is getting excited about sewing as well don't worry he is eleven and wants to be a surgeon when he grows up!!!

  6. Niler Taylor says:

    Now I see the reason for your request! I'll add it to my list…thanks for the request.


  7. Niler Taylor says:

    Lol. Wow…30"of snow…that's unreal! We have 70's here in South Georgia. I think it's great that your son learns how to sew. His sewing skills will definately come in handy when he becomes a surgeon…just working on "different" material (the body). He's so forturnate to have a mom like you who is willing to teach him without scolding him for wanted to learn how to sew…you go! Thanks for the info.

    I am so glad I found this. I got a sewing machine as a present at Christmas. I looked at the person who gave it to me like they were crazy lol!! I have no clue how to use one. Just moved to Tyrone, Ga from Ohio and was looking for a sewing class. Someone in grocery store suggested I look up your video series on YouTube! Thanks so much for putting these videos up. I am so excited to get started!!

  11. Niler Taylor says:

    Wow…how cool is that! I'm originallly from Carrollton, Ga, not far from Newnan. It's nice to know that someone from Tyrone "knows" who I am (lol…I'm flattered…enjoying this "celeb" moment.) Glad my videos are helpful for you. If you were just a little closer you could attend my beginners sewing classes at the local tech college. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment. By the way…tell the person, that told you to look me up, that I said THANKS! Happy Sewing.

  12. Tess Redel says:

    I just want to thank you for all of these videos. I got a sewing machine for Christmas and didn't have a clue how to use it. I love your tutorials because they are easy to understand and very helpful. I just made a tote bag with my machine and I'm so excited to get sewing. : )

  13. Niler Taylor says:

    Hi Tess, thanks for watching my videos. I glad they are helpful for you. Congrats on your new machine. I'm sure you are going to have loads of fun sewing. Let me know if you have any questions….Happy Sewing!

  15. BRWNSKN says:

    Thank you for your sharing. I've been laid off and my tailor has offered me to work with him as soon as he completes his shop…I want to show him that I am seriously interested. God bless you in every area of your life.

  16. Niler Taylor says:

    I'm sorry to hear about your job situation. I happy to hear that you have a job lined up. Sewing can be a very lucrative occupation. I wish you the best. Thanks for watching.

  21. POETICA66 says:

    I sew by hand my mom taught me when I was young before she died of breast cancer. But, I more than sure she would be so proud of me to see me sew on a sewing machine. For I am so happy I came across your You Tube videos you have made sewing very interesting and very easy to understand. Thank you so much Niler Taylor

  22. Hi Niler, I love your teaching skills. Can you show me how to use a walking foot including adjusting the stitch. I have tried using it but it seems to stay in one spot and continually make it a bump. Thank you so much!

  23. I have a question. How long would it take to make one pair of leggings and what fabric would you use?
