1-Year Blog Anniversary Week – GIVEAWAY – Most Viewed Post!!!

Hello everyone!  Wow!  You’re all giving me so much to smile about.  As I continue reading your stories, I’m seeing so many of the same reasons why I love to sew.  All I can do is thank God for this gift and for all of you who speak my language.  As I continue my 1-Year Anniversary Week – GIVEAWAY with the Most Viewed Post, I have to thank you again for visiting the blog each week.


1-Year Blog Anniversary Week – GIVEAWAY – Most Viewed Post!!!

When I searched for the most viewed post on the site, I was pleasantly surprised with what I found.  It isn’t a dress I’ve made, nor is it a GIVEAWAY I’ve hosted that drew the most views.  The Beginner’s Sewing Course is the most viewed page on my site!!!  Whaaaat???  Based on feedback, people are loving the video tutorials, and that makes me so HAPPY!  My heart is to teach what I know, and as I continue to improve my sewing skills and increase my knowledge, I will share even more.

Thank you so much for your support of the sewing course.  I know there are tons of sewing tutorials out there and the good thing about that is the availability of variety.  There are different teaching styles that people are attracted to when it comes to audio/visual learning.

  1. Some learn best when lots of detail is involved.  They want to be walked through step-by-step.
  2. Others prefer guidance with the major parts of construction only, and are bored with all the details.
  3. Some need instruction that is slow, and even paced.
  4. Still others want high paced instruction where things move along quickly.
  5. Some are drawn to tutorials where text overlays are involved.
  6. Others would prefer not to have the text on the screen because it interferes with concentration.
  7. Some like videos that are in fast-forward mode with voice overlays and music in.
  8. Others want to view videos in real-time with no musical background.
  9. Some prefer a more business-like, professional approach and tone.
  10. Then there are those who just want to feel relaxed, as if they’re sitting in the room with a friend teaching them to sew.

The beauty of video sewing tutorials is that whatever your learning style may be, there is an instructor out there for you.  It may take a minute to find her/him, but I believe they’re out there.  You may have to pay for the style of instruction you’re seeking, but if it’s worth it to you, then why not?  Once you find an instructor who fits your style, the learning process becomes enjoyable for you.  Therefore, if you run into a tutorial and you’re not happy with the way the instructor is teaching, it’s better to avoid frustration and just move on to another one. It’s that simple.

    Hi Anita,

    I am so happy to have found you. I stumbled upon your youtube channel and started watching your videos and was so excited. Your videos are very easy to understand and are very detailed. After wathching the first video, it was like having an aha moment. I knew I was hooked. Your videos are very easy to understand and detailed. I knew I was hooked. At the time I started watching your videos, I had not sewn a garment piece in over 20 years. I purchased a sewing machine for my daugher when she was 8 years old as I saw she had an interest in sewing. She has since grown up and when she moved out took her sewing machine with her. When I found your youtube channel and your blog. I knew you were a God send. I love your motto. When I first heard you say that my spirit leaped. I felt an instant connection. I have your motto posted on my cubicle wall at work and at home. I feel like I have new sewing friend.

    I started your beginning sewing class and have completed the circle skirt. I was so proud of how the skirt turned out that I wore it to work. My co-workers that know that I started sewing, thought I had purchased a new skirt. I was very proud to say I made it. I am looking forward to continuing to the next lesson and in completing all six different outfits.

    I also look forward to seeing your new outfit each week. It gives me inspirationt to continue sewing. God has truly given you a wonderful gift. I hope to reach your level one day; but I am patient and know if I continue to build upon the techniques you have provided, my skill level will get better.

    May God continue to bless you!

      Hi Sherry! My new sew sister, you have blessed me tonight! After reading your comment all I can do is smile and say, “Thank you God!” I’m so convinced that He has allowed me this platform to reach people just like you.

      Welcome to the sewing community! I’m so proud of you for completing your skirt. Have fun working on the rest of the pieces. Thank you so much for following.

    I have been having trouble keeping my lines straight she everi am trying to hem anything. Lol
    Do you have any ideas on how I can a better accomplish is task?

    1. Stacey H.

      Not sure if this particularly addresses your concern. To ensure an even / straight hem, I have an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock marked with different seam allowances (1/2″, 1″, etc). Before sewing my hem, I use the card stock to measure & iron my hem width / depth, then sew. The straight ironed gold helps me to create an even sew line.

      1. Alencia

        Thank you Stacey H.?I am going to try that and pray it works for me.

    2. Anita Morris

      Hi Alencia! Here’s a tip for your hem that I sometimes use.
      1. Decide what you want your hem allowance to be.
      2. Insert a row of stitching at that measurement. (Let’s use 5/8″ as an example.)
      3. Sew a row of stitching 5/8″ from raw edge of garment.
      4. Finish the raw edge by folding over and sewing in 1/4″, or serge, or use pinking shears.
      5. Press up your hem allowance, folding over at the 5/8″ stitching line making sure the stitching doesn’t show on the outside. It should be just inside the fold, showing on the wrong side.
      6. Sew or slip-stitch your hem in place. If sewing hem, use a focal point on your needle plate to help keep a straight line while sewing.

      I hope this helps.

    I LOVE THAT!!! It speaks volume to me. Not my design as I plan and/or work towards, but “THE DESIGN” God has already planned.

    Almost a sew sister, just trying to getting my space organized!

    Congratulations on your serger Michelle and your completed skirt Aneser!! God bless you all!

    1. Anita Morris

      Hey Peggy, my “almost sew sister.” Yes, yes!!! He created us by His unique DESIGN, so that He may SHINE as we live according to His will in every area of our lives. He must be at the center of it all.

      Welcoming you to the sewing community! Enjoy the journey!

    2. Aneser

      Thank you. Anita is a great teacher!

  4. Michelle

    I am happy my friend stumbled upon you and shared this with me. I am looking forward to getting focused (life happens). I’ve got my sewing area together and fabric and patterns. I’m ready. I did purchase as a gift to myself a serger (have to learn how to use this) Any suggestions? Thanks and have a GREAT DAY!!!!

    1. Anita Morris

      Hey NOW! Yes, you’re ready, so let’s have some fun. Type in the name of your serger in YouTube for tutorials on how to use it. Also, read your User’s Manual. So excited for you.

  5. Aneser

    Hello Anita,
    I have only made it through lesson 1 the circle skirt and I am so pleased to have stumbled upon your lessons. As I said in my previous post I purchased a sewing machine for myself last month for my birthday and am totally thrilled to have already completed a wearable clothing item. You are truly a blessing and I can tell that you love teaching sewing. I plan to continue with the other garments as soon as I can. Thank you Anita!

    1. Anita Morris
