Welcome to your free guide - Learn to Sew A Straight Line & More.

The big secret to learning to sew a straight line - practice, practice, practice! Before even threading up an industrial sewing machine, we were taught to practice using an unthreaded machine and a piece of paper with straight lines ruled on it. By 'sewing' straight lines, curves, corners on paper first, you:

- learn how to control your machine with the pedal

- learn how to guide your 'fabric' in relation to your needle

- build your sewing confidence, you've nothing to lose - it's only paper!

I cannot stress enough the benefits of practicing on these paper printouts, do it for a couple of days at least until you see your accuracy improve, believe me, you will end up wasting less fabric and making fewer mistakes in your projects! 

All the printouts are available to download at the bottom of this page.

Practice, Practice, Practice!
