In one of your old videos, you said that you taught yourself to sew. Do you have any recommendations for sites on how to learn? How did you choose a sewing machine? I know how to hand sew but the machine seems complicated. xD

I didn't learn to machine sew online, but I'm sure you could search for things like that. I just read the instruction manual on my first sewing machine. The woman who sold me my second and third machines walked me through how they worked before I bought them (and she helped me to choose which ones based on what I needed them for). I basically just push the foot pedal and turn the fabric around as it sews, going backwards and forwards at the very beginning and end to keep it from unraveling. It's not complicated once you get the hang of threading the machine.
