If I am stuck on a project, I go to Youtube. I put in the quilt or item I am working on and get different suggestions on how to go about and fix my dilema from sewing experts and even some famous faces. When my mom was ill, my brother ripped his jeans. I had patch before, but this one had frayed threads. I found a woman who was a tailor on youtube and went through step by step on how to fix the pants.
You can also get Eleanor Burns, Nancy Ziemman and a host of others on line too.
I refer to Youtube a great deal when I'm crocheting or knitting. Nothing like a visual to help clear up instructions.
Youtube is a great resource. But if you go to youtube with all your questions you don't get to listen to Gini and me rambling on as we try to explain....ROFLOL
But that way we get the visual and the tutorial, a twofer. A bargin in anyones books.
Vivian - you are so right - when you can't get to a class to see what or how to do something the youtube videos are great - that is what so impressed me about QNNtv the predecessor to QCA although it still continues - I was able to go there and plug in a question and find programs dealing with anything I wanted to learn on quilting - programs that were not available ever here in my area - but now I was able to look them up any time of day or night and in my pajamas - and I watch them a lot - I thank Jodie Davis every day for thinking of this idea - Quilting on the internet - who would have thunk it.
dang, and here i thought i gave very clear and concise instructions. : )

this has happened so many times to me. i will give a long,( long, but clear and concise, not rambling. do i ramble, really?) explanation to a question and the next post will be a short link to another site or youtube giving a tutorial.
I think you give perfect instructions. I read mine back to myself and wonder what I was trying to say.
nana, i was laughing at my self. i started an explanation to something today, checked for spelling and it was so convoluted, i just erased it and baked a cheesecake instead.
Now that cheesecake sounds perfect. yummy
Cheesecake is good. And your explainations are very clear, unlike mine.
