Most people do not know where to start sewing because they do not have knowledge of the basic seams used in the process. Contrary to what some believe, machine sewing consists of more than just running fabric straight through the machine. In order to get quality stitches that will last a long time, it is neccessary to know some of the basic sewing seams and how they are used in your clothing.

I cannot guarantee that you will be making your own patterns by next week or anything, but you may be able to mend some garments and make yourself a purse out of the flowery fabric you've been eyeing at the store.
