Watch the live stream: How to hem like a pro

Here is the full live stream I did on Sunday about various hemming techniques and solutions to common hemming struggles. The chat was lit, and we had so much to talk about. Hemming is clearly a topic that has us sewists engaged. So there will definitely be a part two in the future. Plus at the end of the video I give you a sneak peek of the project I’ve been hinting about lately!
