    I am so happy to have found your channel. I have been listening and watching all of your videos since I found the first lesson. I love being created but could not understand the patterns to save my life and the book was no help. I can’t wait to begin my first real sewing project. Thank you for taking the time to be thorough. I can’t express that enough. You have explained it all. I can’t wait to post a pic of my my first skirt from lesson 1.

    Hi Anita

    I have been a fan and admirer of your work from the Make It, Mix It, Rock It Group and the RedPants Design Group. Your work and style is classy and elegant, and you always accessorize your outfits.

    I am a bigger fan now that I had the pleasure to meet you in person at the Mimi G Conference. You are amazing in person.

  3. Jazmyne

    Hey Anita

    I’ve always wanted to learn to sew so my boyfriend brought me a sewing machine for my birthday. One day I was in Hancock fabric, they where having a going out of business sale so I decided to stop in. I went to the back of the store to browse through patterns. As I went through them I struck up a conversation with 2 young ladies who introduced me to your blog.

    Jazmyne ❤️

I can’t wait to tell the next person that likes my outfit yea “I made it” !!! THANK YOU!!!

  22. Tonja

    Hi Anita, I discovered your channel by strolling through you tube for some guidance on sewing a maxi skirt. After looking at your tutorials and how you give step by step instructions on making the latest designs I knew I had found the right person to help me make my sewing easy. Thanks for your Godly gift of patience and teaching.

  23. Camille Bess

    Hello, my name is Camille. It was by happenstance that I found your YouTube site (first). I was looking for a tutorial on how to sew a circle skirt and found many other learning videos. At that point I subscribed because I wanted to see a woman of color sewing, being professional, a professional site and also one that would show quality work. I then ordered the pattern to make the skirt in the video.

    Though I’m not a “beginner” per se, I am still what I call an “advanced beginner” because I haven’t sown anything for many years. I gave up because I was told years ago when I wanted to pursue fashion design that I’d have to know how to draw. Drawing is definitely not my forte. If it can be done on a computer – I’m your girl! However, back in the early 90s that was not the case. So, I have to pick up where I left off and continue to build on the skills I do have.

    Thank you for taking the time to do what you do.


  24. Rebecca H

    Hi Anita, I found you blog surfing. My sewing has been pretty maddening lately! seems like when I sew something it never fits. I’m a size 12 but when I looked at the sizes on the pattern it was a size 16 I should have sewn, what…arg so had to add fabric for it to fit. maybe they shouldn’t have sizes just the measurements. But congrats on all your followers and I love JoAnns, so this would be fun to win, thanks for the chance.

  25. Jackie

    Hi, Anita. My name is Jackie. I came by your YouTube channel by chance. It was on my recommendation list two days ago. Your videos are so wonderfully made and so detailed. I felt like I was in a real sewing classroom (which I cannot afford, LOL). I was thinking on picking up on sewing and you just motivated my creative side. I have a sewing and serger that I have not touch in a year. Thank you so much for taking your time to share your knowledge with us. May God continue to Bless you in your new endeavors and with God by our side nothing is impossible. Very anxious to see your future videos. Once again, thank you. God Bless.

  29. Eugenia

    Like I mentioned on your YpuTube page, true and honest. I’m motivated by your confidence. My name is Eugenia. I came across through suggested videos within YouTube. I was inspired by your story and presence. Your choice of clothing/patterns are flattering and elegant. You taught some important side information like, pattern altering that I’ve been craving to learn. It almost caused me to give up. Thank you for that.

  34. Mitzi Griffin

    Hello Anita, first off I would like to congratulate you on acquiring 2000 subscribers that is truly a blessing. My name is Mitzi and I came upon your channel as a suggestion through YouTube and I must say I could not be happier to have found your channel. I have always wanted to learn how to see. Both my mother and my aunt were sewers, my aunt to this day makes all her own clothes my mother focused more on things like seat covers for the kitchen chairs and curtains. My mother was planning to teach me how, but passed away before she got the chance. It’s been 17 years and my desire to learn is just as great now as it was then. I am truly enjoying watching your videos and hope to become as great a sewer as my mom. God Bless you Anita and I can’t wait to celebrate your next milestone with you.

  44. Julia

    Hi Anita, I’m always looking for sewing techniques and was so happy to find your videos, which led me to your blog and just a whole host of wonderful ideas. I sew about anything that is not tied down and make quilts for people in need; i.e., coworkers and friends with cancer diagnoses, illnesses or surgeries, and have found it not only helps the recipient but me too (amazingly), and Girls Inc, which I designate as my donation organization. So I’ve developed a personal mission of sorts. BUT, OF COURSE, my first love is Fashion, and one of my goals is to make all my clothes–Haaa! I’m pretty sloppy in my technique in that area, so you have joyfully awakened me from a deep sleep! I just want to say thank you, and may He bless all those you touch.

    Hi, I located you one day while sewing blog surfing. I love your blog and your designs.

  62. Mariela Alethia

    I hello Anita, you participated in the Amazing Coat Sew A Long last year. You made a beautiful light pink coat using MimiG’s coat pattern and you made the hat to match. I love the way you styled your coat. After I realize that you were a Pericrafter and that you seem to love wearing skirts and I love skirts. I absolutely love hats and I mostly wear hats in the summer. Unfortunately, I develop an allergy to wool and I was forced to give so many of my beautiful hats to Goodwill store. I wish I knew about you, I would have happily given you all my fabulous hats because I know you would have appreciated them. I appreciate your love of color,and your simple yet elegant style. I subscribed to your You-Tube channel to watch your sewing classes. After watching the first two classes I recommended your channel to my daughter so that she can learn to sew. Congratulations on the fantastic growth of your channel and the best is yet to come.

As a new sewer with the basic skills- you have given me the courage to actually make a garment! I have straight sewed such as in quilting, but you definitely gave me the courage to try! You are refreshing- love your channel and now subscribed to your Blog. God Bless You- <3

  71. Julett

    Hi Anita,I found your page on instagram and loved it.You made me dust of my sewing machine and go pattern shopping at Hobby Lobby. My mom sews for a living and while I can do some really simple stuff I regret not paying more attention as a kid and learning from her. You’re my new teacher!!!

  72. Verlinda

    I noticed your blog on Carla Jacob’s Facebook page. Love your knowledge and designs.

  73. Margo

    Hi Anita ,I left a comment on your Youtube channel but I forgot to tell you that i subscribed. My name is Jeannie Jones, I’ve just started back sewing and I often go to Youtube to watch videos to refresh my memory or to learn something new. I also like to watch fabric hauls. I have become addicted to buying fabric.Lol. I just happen to come across your channel and you turned out to be perfect.Great new Motto, Glad to know that you are a believer. Maybe that’s why your beauty shines on the inside as well as outside. Can’t wait for more tutorials. Thank You!

  79. Freda

    Anita love your YouTube podcast. I’ve been sewing for a long time; currently I’m revamping a skirt and was looking for dart placement info and you podcast came up in my search. I’ve all your videos.

  80. Marilyn

    I just posted about how grateful I am to have found you and am beginning to sew. While I have some background, I by no means am considered intermediate. I forgot to tell you how stunning you looked at your son’s graduation. That dress is so lovely. Since I’m a beginner, do you think that would be too difficult for me? I really love, love, love it. JoAnn’s has Simplicity patterns for $1.99 for the next few days and I’m thinking of purchasing it for the future. Thanks so much.

  81. Marilyn

    What a blessing you are, Anita. I found you while searching videos for beginning sewers. All the ones I viewed claimed to be for beginners but assumed we all had background in selecting a pattern, measuring our body, reading the pattern, choosing the amount of fabric to purchase, etc.. While I do have some background, I was so grateful to see your attention to all the details from the very beginning. You remind me of my dear mother who always said it’s the details that people don’t notice but if you skip those steps, your garment will scream HOMEMADE. She will be so happy I’m finally learning to sew professionally instead of the sloppy manner I always did. I raced through a garment, didn’t press until the end and my garment did scream HOMEMADE. As a result, time and money wasted because the garments were so hideous that I couldn’t wear them. Thank you for taking us by the hand and walking us step by step with attention to every detail. Mom will be so proud of me; God bless her soul.

  82. Vee

    You inspire me to try sewing! Oh My!

    I learned of you from FB…a friend shared a post.

  83. Evetta

    Hi Anita! My name is Evetta and I learned about your beautiful and informative designs by watching sewing videos on youtube. I switched over and have been hooked ever since. I adore your new motto. It is very inspiring. Keep doing what you are doing and blessings will continue to come. I love your videos. They are very thorough and informative. Thanks!!

  84. JC

    Hello! I was already subscribing to your you tube channel for a couple of months. I found you posting on a few Facebook sewing groups & decided to google to see if you had a channel, blog, etc. Love your teaching style & how you remember us beginners! Thank you!

  85. Regina

    Hello Anita,

    I can’t remember what took me to your instagram page. I just recall how excited I was to see you stepping out in/on “FAITH” to begin your sewing journey. I have pretty much followed you from day one.

    The black dress with the 1955 red truck was when I realized I was “HOOKED”. Your style is so Audrey Hepburn(ish) “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. You are such a classic beauty and spirit and it radiates in all you’ve done so far.

    I have enjoyed the tutorials and have watched them over and over again. I look forward to seeing how your journey continues to grow.

    May GOD Continue to Bless You and Your Family!!!!

    Hi Anita!! I found your blog by praying about it. Literally. I was so frustrated with how my garments were turning out and I asked God for help. I told him that I knew he put the desire to sew in my heart but I couldn’t glorify him by giving to others until I could get it right. Literally 2 days later, I landed on your blog. I don’t even really know what I was looking at that led me there but I found you! Praise His Holy Name!!! I can’t wait to see the next tutorial!! Thank you for sharing your time, talent and passion for the craft!

Although I have been sewing for a few years now, I was interested in your beginner sewing course. The quality of your videos and the excellence in your teaching style was a joy to watch. I watched most of them in two days.

    Thank you so much for sharing your love for Almighty God and your love of sewing with the world.

    You truly live your motto: “When you live in your design, it is from there that God shines!”

Whether I win or not the giveaway..I have already won by finding your tutorials. Thank you.
