Master Sewing Basics
Learn the basics of sewing and use that time saved on those future sewing projects!
Wouldn't it be amazing if you didn't have to struggle to learn how to sew, alone?
Guess what? You don't!
Wouldn't it be rather cool if you could save time learning the sewing basics in one place?
Well, now you can!
Does this sound about right?
You have a sewing machine, but it's been stashed in your closet for years because you've never had the time to learn to sew..
You've tried following the directions that came with your sewing machine manual, but you still don't know what you should be doing with your machine...
You've struggled to know when to use which hand sewing stitch, or even what needle and thread should be used...
You keep buying fabric for new projects but then you just can't seem to get started on them...
The seams you have sewn have been a bit skewy and the tension is just OFF not matter how you turn the dial...
You're TIRED and FRUSTRATED that it is taking SO MUCH TIME to learn these basics when all you want to do is sew clothes for yourself and your family.
Well sewing friend... I GET it!
The thing is, nothing will change if you don't change it.
DECIDING to learn to sew was such a great start, and TRYING to learn using all the different sources on the internet is admirable..
Yet, if you're still struggling after all this effort and you REALLY want to learn the sewing basics, so you can start sewing your own clothes, YOU NEED A PLAN.
Close your eyes and imagine that you could...
...sit down at your machine with confidence knowing exactly to how to work it
...mark, pin and cut your fabrics confidently, halving the time it takes to make something
...sew straight seams, curved seams and even tricky flat-felled seams!
...sew in a basic zipper or a machine button hole with barely a blink of your eye
DOESN'T THAT SOUND AMAZING?
Well m'friend... this is ALL POSSIBLE - just by mastering the basics!
Let me introduce you to: Master Sewing Basics
Master Sewing Basics is my introduction to sewing course teaching you all that I know about getting started with the sewing basics. This means YOU can get crackin' on creating those basic sewing projects and in less time too.
These are the same techniques that I use, to sew my own clothes!!!
AND, I use a domestic sewing machine, not a professional industrial one, so YOU can get the same quality too with a bit of practice!
My husband was not very good with even the basics of sewing but when his wedding suit needed taking up and taking in, Eve did a fantastic job of talking him through exactly how to do it, and in such an easy to understand way, that even he who is a complete beginner could understand and manage to do it.

Hiya! I'm Eve Tokens. I have a blog all about creating your own fashionable clothes using sewing, pattern making and fashion design skills. I use it to inspire and excite sewists who want that little something extra from their sewing creations.
I am also a fashion designer and creative pattern cutter with my own sustainable fashion brand here in London. As well as owning my own brand, I have also spent time at some of the best schools for fashion - Central Saint Martins in London and The New School in NYC - and the best fashion design studios too; Peter Pilotto, Hardy Amies and Roland Mouret being just three.
I've been sewing since I was young; my Ma and Gran taught me their tricks. Since 2003, my life has been all about becoming a fashion professional. Fashion studies and freelancing, as well as working on my own fashion collections.
I don't want to just give you patterns and send you on your way. I want to teach you fashion skills with style so that you can feel confident at making anything and looking amazing.
