In other words, you can make sense out of sewing here. You'll find lessons that are skill-oriented rather than project-oriented.
The Sensible Sewing Difference - Skill-Oriented Vs. Project-Oriented Teaching
Project-oriented instruction teaches you how to do one process. For example, if you wanted to learn how to put a zipper into a dress for yourself, you could go somewhere to learn how to do that and, when everything was said and done, you would know how to put a zipper into a dress for yourself.
But suppose in addition to that you'd like to learn how to put a zipper in a child's garment or a pair of men's pants or a jacket? With project-oriented instruction you would have to take classes or read materials for each of these processes.
With the skill-oriented instruction that you'll get from Sensible Sewing, when you learn how to put in a zipper, you'll learn how to use that skill across all applications. You'll be able to put in a zipper in any size and style of dress, jackets, pants and more. The same goes for learning how to put in buttons, pockets and much more.
In short, Sensible Sewing's skill-oriented instruction is much more efficient and considerably more cost-effective.
