Wrong Title For Sure Review by Susan
Rating

A more appropriate title for this DVD would be something like "customize your garments" or "get crafty with your sewing machine." You will learn how to cut up T-shirts and decorate them, do hand embroidery on fabric with thread and beads, make a scarf of cut-up silk squares. Frankly, I was hoping for more of the first episode which included sewing darts, top stitching, stay-stitching and under-stitching seams. I wanted helpful hints for garment sewing, but only got a tiny bit of that. The rest of the DVD was really not that but rather projects for those who want something other than off-the-rack clothing. I was disappointed because the title was misleading. The quality of the teaching and DVD was good - although I did have a bit of difficulty getting the lessons to start up. (I had to play around with clicking, Enter, and restarting the DVD. I'm not sure what actually worked, but Enter was a player.)

Sewing Tips DVD Review by Annette Siverson

I pre-ordered this DVD and based on the preview I just watched, I can't wait to get this home. Clear, concise instruction and tips from a pro. Beginner and seasoned sewist will all get something from this.
