trying to learn how to sew

Try the online sewing lessons here:


http://www.sew-whats-new.com/sewinglessons/ (include a beginner sewing forum)


and I would also send you to www.sewing.org , but it is not working today.  It also has a sewing lesson section.


I have also found it handy to have some basic sewing books nearby when I was beginning to sew after a long drought.  Books like the Reader's Digest Complete Book of Sewing, Sewing for Dummies (don't laugh, it is not bad... I personally swear by the "Excel for Dummies" and "Classical Music for Dummies), and for the truly frugal check out the sewing section of your library.


And after a bit work check out the articles at http://www.taunton.com/threads/pages/th_feat_sewbas.asp


But, the most important thing is just to plunge in and try.  It may not work the first time... but we all get better the more we create.
