Susanne McPhee
Susanne McPhee

Hi I'm Susanne an Inspirational Sewing Instructor who loves quilting and creating any quick and easy sewing projects.

I always try to see the positive in everything no matter how tiny the "good spark" is. And whenever possible I try to see this in the fabric I choose as well or I stitch good memories or a good feeling into my projects. Sew with purpose and make the most of the time you have.

If I'm not sewing I either spin ideas what I could create or simply enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. All materials and videos in this course are under copyright and you are only allowed to use the materials for yourself and for private use only. Any kind of distribution or public sharing is not allowed.
Isn’t it like learning to ride a bicycle and I’ll never forget how it works?
Yes and no. For some people it may be that way but others are not as adventurous or have the time to play around for ages to figure everything out again. With this class they take a short cut and get quickly back into they’re sewing rhythm and start creating.
Will I be a confident beginner after taking this class?
If you started with 0 sewing knowledge than no. If you already had experience in the past and just use this as a re-fresher class than yes it could definitely be that you are a confident beginner. It all depends on the techniques and knowledge that you can tick off. When you signed up to my email list you should have received a free sewing skill level overview which is also included in the workshop that can assist you in checking where you at with your sewing skills.
What if I have questions?
We are here for you. You can always send us an email to get your questions answered. We try to answer any questions as quickly as possible but please give us 24hrs – 48hrs to respond.
What sewing machines do you use to demonstrate the threading?
In this booklet I used my small brother BM2600 showing the set up for winding your bobbin, how to insert your bobbin from the top and exact steps for threading your top thread. I used my more advanced machine Bernina B750 QE showing the set up for winding your bobbin as it's slightly different as on the other machine and how to insert your bobbin from the front. It has a more modern bobbin case compared to some older models but the main mechanism is still the same.
