How to Hem your Jeans
http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/447-how-to-hem-your-jeans The perfect pair of properly fitting jeans. It's like the holy grail of fashion finds. Unfortunately, most of us do not have the stamina nor wherewithal to attempt such a daunting quest. So Shauna has taken it upon herself to educate the masses on how to hem their own jeans. Operating out of her homegrown sewing studio, First Samples, Shauna has years of experience dealing with jean maintenance. In this lesson, she explains how anyone with a sewing machine, and the knowledge of how to use it, can obtain perfectly hemmed pants without having to take them to the tailor. First Samples opened its doors in January of 2005. It was created in response to the interest people were showing to learn how to sew apparel and the lack of places to learn at. It's main goal is to nurture and propagate the art and craft of garment construction. We live every day from the day we are born to the day we die wearing sewn products. We have become so removed from our clothes that most of us have trouble sewing a button on. Our sewing is all outsourced. First Samples??¢ wants to bring it back home.
