A little elf told me that quite a few of our students are receiving new sewing machines this Christmas!
I think that’s just awesome! It makes my heart happy to know the girls are enjoying sewing so much that a sewing machine made it on their wish list. I can’t wait to see pictures of what they’ve created over the holiday break!
I thought it might be helpful (especially for you non-sewing mommas) to provide you with a few practice sewing sheets. You can print these out ahead of time, maybe even gift wrap them too? Once your little sewist opens her new machine—you will be ready when she asks, “Can I use it right now?!?!?”
Practice Sewing Sheet How-To:
- Download and print.
- Don’t thread your machine (the threads don’t cooperate on paper) – the needle will leave a trail of little punched holes for you to see how well you stayed on the line.
- Start practice sewing and have fun!

All the best,
P.S. I’m working on a short video showing proper threading, bobbin winding, and basic sewing steps for the Brother CS-6000i. Stay tuned for that soon…
