    Join the American Sewing Guild if you have a group in your area. You'll find great new friends and get lots of ideas for projects.

    How would I change very wide legged pants into bootleg ones? Do I take in both inner and outer seams and from which point doI start the flare?

    To enlarge the arm whole, I think it would be best to lower the arm whole by the side seam. This should give a little more room.

    I have narrow shoulders and when I buy a sweatshirt the shoulder seam hangs over my shoulder. How can I make the shoulder fit better so it doesn't look so sloppy?

    I would like to learn how to fix holes on wool garments(fabric), woven and knit also. Do you have video klasses for that?

    Hello! So glad y'all are doing these live Q&As. I noticed we have the same Brother sewing machine - can you talk a bit about the tension knob setting - I'm not sure which is the best setting. Thanks!!
