A great place to start with sewing classes online is  “Sewing School” at my friend April’s blog, Wildflowers and Whimsy.  April is covering all the facets of sewing from machines to fabrics to techniques. At the end of the “school” she’s going to be hosting a few “sew alongs” test out our new skills (using brand-new patterns she’s just publishing).  All of her posts are print friendly, too, so you can print everything out and read as you sew if you need to!  As a result of April’s post about sewing machines, I purchased a new Brother sewing machine a few years ago as an upgrade to the Black Friday special I owned and it was such a great investment. I love that sewing machine!

Craftsy offers several sewing classes online for every level of sewer.  You do need to pay for most of them, but they are very inexpensive.  I’ve picked out a few that sound perfect for beginners. You can try a few classes for free to see if you like them!

Online Sewing Class
I love this Sew Confident: Essential Techniques for Beginners class where you will learn essential techniques every new sewer should know.

In Sewing Studio with Diana Rupp you get to know your machine and the basics of pinning, stitching, pressing and finishing as you make a pillow and a pencil skirt.

Pajama pants are a super easy beginner project and you can get some guidance in this Learn to Sew Pajama Pants class.

Learn how to turn cast off clothes in to cute accessories in the class Project Upcycle.

The fabric store can be very overwhelming and it’s easy to pick the wrong fabric for a project.  I bet this Fabric Know-How: Choosing and Using Your Favorite Fabrics would be very handy so as not to choose the wrong fabric.

Reading a sewing pattern takes a little big of skill. I wish I’d taken 40 Techniques Every Sewer Should Know years ago! It would have saved me a lot headaches when reading patterns.

Felt is a great fabric to sew with because you don’t have to hem it! Check out this adorable Fab Felt Holiday class and learn to make cute holiday decor and gifts with felt.

My kids have way more confidence in my sewing skills than I do and constantly ask me to sew them costumes. I need to take The Costume Box class to learn how!

Sew (ha ha) what are you waiting for? No more excuses! Time to get sewing!

    I just saw the cutest skirt on Nap Time Creations to sew and I told her I was going to steal my mom’s sewing machine. Now I”m seeing that I can actually learn to sew online. I think it’s a sign! Thanks for linking up at Found & Foraged. See you tonight at 8PM!

    Great resources! I would love to learn to sew….I haven’t done it since maybe the 8th grade? Seems like a skill that would come in handy! Dropping by from SITS!

    I attended sewing classes for some months, but I started missing so many classes because of overtime that I quit. Maybe I could think of online courses…
    Thanks a lot for sharing these links. I have a look at them later.

    Stopping by from Sunday’s Best. You must have read my mind. I’ve been thinking about sewing lessons for some time, so this post is perfect. It would be nice to learn in the comforts of my home. You’ve inspired me to create a Beginner’s Sewing Board to house my resources. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for this. I’ve only just decided to learn how to sew (a sewing machine is my birthday present this year) so I’m basically clueless. This class will be great help!
