I hate to say this but I have been sewing for over 30 years. My mother taught me to sew when I was young and it’s a something that I have enjoyed doing for myself and also for my many clients in the Charlotte area. Once you learn the proper skills and techniques you will be able to sew just about anything with the assistance of books, patterns, and videos.
