  1. Thank you so much for this wonderful video. I am about to tackle my first knit top and feel more confident after watching this video. In addition, all of your videos have been very helpful, Sarah. Thank you again.

  2. Very well done. Your videos have always impressed me. Keep up the real work of teaching people to sew. Not just selling the goodies but what to do with them instead.

      1. I recently purchased a walking foot and an embroidery foot. My manual does not show how to use or attach these optional accessories. Where can I find a tutorial please?
