Hi, I'm Katrina Marie...a lifetime fashion designer and sewing teacher!
I would love to teach your kids how to sew. I know they will have fun learning once everything is set up and ready!
Would you like help getting started?
Machine Setup - Ready to get your sewing machine setup and running so you can start sewing? First, you need to learn the basics like how to Wind and Insert a Bobbin, Thread your Machine and Change a Needle.
Stitching Practice - It's time to get your sewing machine stitching! Practice straight lines, pivoting, using a seam gauge to measure, and adjusting the tension. Plus...stitching circles & spirals. Remember, practice makes perfect!
Space Setup - Watch this little space, perfect for a kid or even a beginner, come together before your very eyes. Simple and quick to setup, in just 15 minutes, you'll learn what items are needed to keep your area tidy & neat!
Tools Needed - There are many tools for sewing, some are great and other are not so good. Learn a little bit more about tools before buying a pair of dull scissors, pins that are to small, or marking pens that don't write.
Favorite Materials - Materials are what inspires a little artist to create, so make sure to have some on hand! Build a stash that says "Make something out of me, today". Bright fabrics, buttons and trim all make sewing more fun!
I'll show you everything you need to get ready to sew with your kids... and it's all bundled up on 2 Disks in my 3-hour Getting Started DVD.

"I purchase it for my family to watch and to learn from it. It did a great job explaining everything from the start with the sewing machine and then rest of the materials. She is a great teacher that make it so easy to understand for the whole family to learn sewing and have self confidence." Reynaldo Morales
"These DVDs have helped me a lot....even though she uses a different machine. I love that the DVD includes some stitching practice. Katrina walks you through things step-by-step and she is very easy to understand. I have learned a lot from watching the DVD and I can't wait to learn more." Crystal Porter
Who is this DVD for?
This DVD is to be used by a family member such as a mom, an older sister, an aunt or a grandparent. It was created to help with the setup required to get children (ages 5 to 12) ready for sewing.
Who it this NOT for?
It is not for a parent that is not willing to take action and buy (or find) the items needed such as a sewing machine, tools, fabric and anything else that may be needed for their childs sewing journey.
It is not intended for children to watch by themsleves because kids usually get bored if they are not hand-on with a project. While there are a have a few stitching practice projects, most of this DVD covers setting up and what is needed to get started. We do have a series of project videos just for kids though, that you will find out about soon!
