Threading a machine and the raising the bobbin thread can be intimidating and challenging for a new sewer. This well-shot and clear DVD shows you step-by-step how to thread the machine and "run" bobbins for contemporary and antique models, so you'll be able to confidently apply what you've learned to  thread most sewing machines, especially your own.
FREEHAND CUTTING OF WOMENSWEAR                           5 DVD Set 
Learn the technique to measure out and cut simple to more complicated styles directly from the fabric without a pattern, keeping a mental picture of the finished design in mind as you learn to shape the pieces and cut. This method is for those who are tired of going through the rigorous process of having to customize a commercial pattern or make a pattern from scratch, before daring to cut the fabric. You, however, want to do it like the ateliers of the past (or better still) like you saw your granny do it, so many years ago! Be the complete designer with this set of DVDs.
