Found the Sewing Guru website, which looks interesting. Subscription needed to view sewing courses and videos. Anyone tried it?

I bought a month's subscription ($17) and I am learning a lot - now I finally understand how to put a fly front zipper into pants! I am not affiliated in any way -- and I am almost hesitant to give the glowing review this site deserves for fear someone will think I'm shilling for the company ! But if you are a visual learner like I am, you should definitely check out the 2-day free trial.

The videos are really clear and cover a huge range of topics - tailoring, certainly, but also women's dresses and trousers, jeans, etc. The fellow who does the demonstrations moves at a good pace from one step to the next and doesn't skip anything.

Some of my favourite videos so far have shown how to make pants facings straight from the partially-sewn pants panels and how to insert an invisible zipper *after* the majority of the seam has been sewn -- no ugly pucker like you get from the directions on the zipper package.

I am playing these videos one at a time in my sewing room and basically following along step by step - even though I am an intermediate level sewer, I'm really getting a lot out of them.

I tried the subscription button. (All of them) and I kept getting an error or it would send me back to my previous site. Do the owners of the site ever check their product sites.

I'm signed on to this site, as I'm another visual learner who likes follow-along-step-by-step tuition. I received a reply to an e-mail on Christmas Day. So I don't think they suffer from lack of attention ! If you're having problems you might try the Contact Us form.

I have recently signed up to this website and would like to say that am very happy.

You can see quite a few of his lessons free on YouTube if you want to see what they are like. Search for Michael Coates or The Sewing Guru.

He really walks you through step by step how to tailor. For instance, one class, the Ladies Tailored Jacket (McCalls 6172) has 28 videos! All averaging about 20 minutes each! And that is just one of the four Jacket classes he has.

I'm really happy, I think the price is a steal, and I hope he is successful so he will keep making more videos!
