Learning how to sew is becoming a lost art. I thought I would share for you some online sewing classes for beginners that you can take yourself or share with your family. Older children can definitely learn to sew and it will benefit them later in life.

I ran across an online learn site called Skillshare where you can get three months of access for 99 cents (click the link to access). That includes tons of courses on sewing but on a wide range of other topics as well. From cooking classes to classes on business topics to photography and so much more! I love that you can try the service for so cheap before making any commitment. I thought I would round up a small portion of the classes on how to sew for you here. Start with these sewing classes for beginners and branch out into other topics that interest you before your trial runs out.

Inserting invisible zippers can be challenging. Learn the two secrets to inserting the perfect invisible zipper in this course. This was something that took me forever to master. I really wish I had a video course like this one when I was learning!
This class is the first of a two part series that equips students with all of the basic skills needed for quilting.

These are just five of the great sewing courses you can find on Skillshare. Click here to try the service for three months for 99 cents. You can take as many courses as you would like during those 3 months and really give the site a test drive then continue if you would like or cancel. It is totally up to you but there is no way you can learn everything there is to know on Skillshare in just three months. I have been approached by other online learning sites but was hands down impressed with the number and wide variety of courses offered by Skillshare. I think y’all will love this online learning website. You can use it to learn how to sew or for any of the number of topics that they offer.
