Last weekend I taught my husband to sew. I've been a sewing instructor for close to 5 years and this was his very first lesson. Our daughter joined him because she needed a refresher. The two of them made a good team and helped each other throughout the lesson.
He was a star student!
After he mastered the self-threaded. . .
He was also really good at guiding the fabric with two hands.
We moved on to zigzag stitches where I explained how to use the stitch length and width dials. After that, he was ready to experiment on his own.
Look at all those fun stitches!
Our next lesson, and the real reason for his interest in learning to sew, will be explained in Part II of "He's Sew Cool". Stay tuned!
