This is a clip from Angela Wolf’s online class, Sew Confident: Essential Techniques for Beginners. Why take this class? Students rave:

“This has been such a helpful class. I’m not very experienced, but I could follow all the explanations, as everything you need to see is shown to you in detail. The teacher is very organised and to the point, so much so that there’s never a dull moment. How to sew darts has been demystified as well as how to iron them. I now also understand how to use different types of stitches, which is great, but Angela also tells you when you’ll need to use each stitch and why, which is so useful. The lesson on invisible zippers has made me feel that I can actually do it (zippers have always petrified me). I can see that I’m going to be referring to this course again and again in the future. Thank you so much Angela!
