Sewteacher.com is a grassroots business created by and designed for working professionals, stay at home moms, amateur decorators, and anyone who is interested in creating original decorative and functional products for their home.  

 

The Sewteacher philosophy is based on the idea that quality home decorative goods and professional sewing products aren't only for those who can afford to hire high-priced decorators and seamstresses.  The DIY or do-it-yourself movement is growing as quality goods become more expensive to buy, and more consumers across the nation are seeking ways to make their own products in a more cost effective manner.  The added benefit of the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that comes from designing and making your own home goods only adds to this growing phenomena.  We here at Sewteacher firmly believe in the do-it-yourself attitude, and our goal is to help you design and produce your own home decorative products such as pillows, window treatments, bedding, using the same methods and tools the professionals use, at a fraction of the cost!       

 

Sewteacher instructional videos feature our Creative Director, Beth Bates, a professional seamstress with many years experience making window treatments, bedding and pillows.  Beth will walk you through the steps in a calm, relaxed manner, using easy to understand instructions and examples, all the while giving you special insider seamstress tips and suggestions.  Beth will show you how the professionals do it, so you don't have to hire them to do it for you!

Beth Bates: Hi, my name is Beth Bates and I an interior seamstress with the company SewTeacher, at SewTeacher.

com. Today, I will be teaching you how to sew your own custom Christmas tree skirt using your choice of decorative fabrics. We will show you everything from cutting the fabric, sewing the outer edge of the skirt together with the lining, making cuts for the inner circle, sewing the inner circle, turning it inside out and pressing and sewing the opening closed.

Before we begin, let us go ahead and gather our supplies. For this project you will need a sewing machine that performs the straight stitch. You will need stick pins, a hot iron, flexible measuring tape or some household strings, some sharp scissors used only for cutting fabric and some a yard and a half of lining and a yard and a half of decorator fabric. Some options that you may wish to use would be some decorator trims and some fringe adhesive, which is available at your local craft store and some general sewing knowledge would be helpful for this video.

A quick word about safety is whenever you are using a hot iron or sharp objects such as scissors or pins, you need to use extreme caution and if children are doing this project with you, please make sure they are supervised at all times. So before we begin, let me tell you little bit about myself.

I am an interior seamstress with the company SewTeacher at SewTeacher.

com. I teach people such as yourself, how to make custom window treatments, beddings and pillows. Our next clip will be about making the patterns and measuring. So let us get started.

I heard about Beth Bates' Christmas Tree skirt video from a friend, and just checked it out for myself. As a sewing professional, I think it is informative and easy to follow, even for a beginer. And what an excellent gift idea!
