What you'll see in our Studio Y Online Learning Center: Real life sewing. No pretty backdrop, unpolished nails, messy sewing rooms, different clothes including stocking feet and sometimes sweatpants. You’ll be watching us as we create and sew in real life at home and in the shop. It will be recorded as we do it on different days, with different fabrics, on different machines as we finish projects or change our mind mid-stream. Join us to see the whole creative process.
We are quilt shop owners - we sew and embroider every day. This is what we do. Let’s have some fun together!
We aren’t professional photographers or videographers, copy writers, editors or proof readers, web designers, social media specialists or many other things. So please enjoy the videos and laugh along with us! We’re doing our best. Just like you and your sewing skills - always do the best you can with the skills you have at the time :)
What does that mean to you? It may not look “fancy” but, you’ll learn stuff . . .when we make a mistake, we’ll show what we did wrong and how to fix it. You’ll see the tools and processes we use every day.
You’ll learn the “why & how” of projects - not just be told what to do.
Learning should be fun. We’ll do the best we can in our online classes.
Thanks, Sheryl & Elayne

This "class" is a variety of videos recorded during actual classes at The Sewing Basket. It covers basic knowledge quilters need including: fabric preparation, rotary cutting, 1/4" seams, pressing and much more. This class covers not only how to do things, but also why it is important.
