Sewing education has always been important to Simplicity and other companies. The Singer Sewing Machine stores were famous for their sewing classes back in the day.
Now we have Youtube. I recently found out Simplicity even has it's own Youtube channel with lots of tutorials. Check it out!
But the best vintage promotional/learn to sew thing I've ever seen is this 1948 film! It is not hard to find on line any more. Have to thank my wonderful brother-in-law Joe, for finding it almost 10 years ago for me.
It's about 20 minutes long ... enjoy!
And if for some reason it isn't playing well here on my blog. Click on this link to watch it directly on Youtube.
