Hi and welcome! Here is a little about Monica Hall, that's me. I am the creator of this website, Sew Stitch Learn.com. I started Sew Stitch Learn in June of 2008. I love to add to it as often as time permits to help you to learn how to sew.
I dabble in many creative pursuits, such as quilt art, cross-stitch, needlepoint, and gardening and of course, web page building, but what I love the most is sewing. I have an eye for fashion...or so I am told, and sewing has gone hand in hand with my flare for fashion.
I started at the age of 5 years old. My mom would have me sit on her knee and she would show me simple sewing techniques.
I started with doll clothes and as I became older, I would make simple clothing for myself. My mother is very resourceful, with five children sewing your own clothing was very economic for her.
Fast forward more than 50 years and I still have a strong passion for sewing and creating. My inspiration for building a sewing website was simple, I didn't feel there was enough practical, FREE information on the internet.
When you are a beginner, sewing challenges can make or break your desire to continue learning this craft. The more simplistic the information and tutorials are, the easier it is to conquer even the smallest challenges, that's why I started this website. In the photo above, I am wearing a silk dress I made, about 20 years ago. I spent about $25.00 for the pattern and the fabric. I have worn this dress for many occasions. Not bad for a quick little black dress.
People ask me to make clothing or costumes for them and I have encouraged them to learn how to sew for themselves.
I started to wonder how much of my knowledge of sewing would be useful to others. Here I am, building web pages that will offer the most informative sewing instructions I can offer. I hope you find this website useful. I am always excited to hear from you when you visit, so please offer your feedback.
Below is a place you can connect with me, give me your questions, your tips and your advice. Even...when it's constructive criticism about how I can make this site better for you...please let me know. We will all benefit from our experiences as we learn to become better sewers.
