I think it would be extremely suitable for new beginners. It was very clear and explained everything. It was a really good review for someone who had not done any sewing for about 20 years. I had completely forgotten about sewing on curves and clipping.
excellent for beginners and a good refresher course for those of us who haven't used their sewing skills in a very long time.
It's wonderful, I'm teaching my 9 year old Granddaughter to sewing and she is loving making things for her AG dolls.
Sewing Academy is great! I expected it to be great coming from LJC but it was greater than expected. I used it this summer with my 2 granddaughters (12 and 8 yrs. old) and they loved Cinnamon. They worked from the videos and then they tried doing something to review what was on the video. Thanks.
Watched these Video's with my 4 year old. We learned a lot and she uses the knowledge she gained when we go fabric shopping for her dolls:) Very easy to understand and follow and love that you can download the Video's to watch again and again offline.
