Here are YouTube’s 15+ most popular sewing channels right now, that work both as learning resource and inspiration. This is a list of the best sewing vloggers to follow in 2020. Watching sewing videos is a wonderful way to learn sewing techniques for your projects, at your own pace.
Let me tell you this. I have always loved watching sewing vlogs. It’s like having a virtual friend (and at the same time a real person) patiently explaining to you things and breaking down everything you need to know about sewing. Isn’t it amazing?
Besides, you get to see someone else’s sewing room, their sewing hacks, how they maneuver the fabric pieces and the sewing machine at any given moment, or where their fingers are placed while inserting an invisible zipper or sewing the elastic.
