HI DARLINGS! Happy New Year. I am so thrilled to get back to blogging and sharing so I am kicking off the year with a recap of SEW IT ACADEMY for those who follow me for fashion but are looking to learn how to sew which is how most of my followers began at one point. Learning to sew is not hard and it’s not a skill you need to be born with.

Too many people’s surprise I was actually not very good at sewing when I started. It took me time to learn to sew and even longer to fit my body. I even gave up after a while and started making things I didn’t need to fit to my body like handbags and crafts. Eventually, I wanted to make clothes badly enough that I stick with it and through trial and error I finally started getting the hang of it. Here is the difference between you and me, I did not have a Mimi G to teach me, no one to guide me and YOUTUBE was not even a thing.

That is why I created SEW IT ACADEMY. I wanted people to have a place to go where they could learn to sew without ever having had any experience and I wanted it to be affordable. I wanted to make sure that I could provide a curriculum that any fashion design school offered but for the cost of two lattes a month. It hasn’t been easy but we have successfully taught tens of thousands of students and counting.

I also created a FREE TRIAL that does NOT require a credit card to try. I want you to see for yourself how I teach and what you can expect and if you choose to sign up after that then it’s on you to click the link and enroll. There is also a link to EXPLORE the courses you gain access to as a member.

Here is some info you may be wondering about…

SEWITACADEMY.COM is for everyone.
