Wanted to share some excellent videos I found on Youtube for those of you just learning to sew. They are under West Valley Colledge . They are under Basic garment construction, it is a series of 6 videos.

Each of the videos are an hour long but very informative it is like having you own private tutor. She uses small pieces of fabric so that you can clearly see the technique. I even re-learned a few things. :-)

Here is the link to the first video, from there you can find the others:

West Valley Colledge Basic Garment lesson 1

Lesson 1 is tools
Lesson 2 is the machine
Lesson 3 basic seams including lap and french seams
Lesson 4 is sewing curves and collars and invisible zipper
Lesson 5 is Lapped Zipper, facings, she makes a skirt
Lesson 6 is hand sewing

Enjoy
