Far more than a random collection of sewing tips, the Islander Sewing System rekindles enthusiasm for sewing. Clear close-ups of all operations reveal the simplicity of these methods and steer students away from those methods that discourage creativity. As a result of her techniques and instructional methods, Margaret Islander has now become a leading proponent of "today's sewing" and the Islander system is becoming the "Heartbeat of Contemporary Sewing".

Collection Includes
Industrial Shortcuts
Shirts, Etc!
Pants, Etc! and Pants, Etc! Workbook

    Collection of 8 DVDs

    Posted by Kyle LoCascio on 18th Dec 2020

    I have watched some of these lessons on Craftsy but I have long been a fan of the founder, Margaret Islander. I enjoyed her appearances from on Sandra Betzina’s Sew Perfect. Margaret and Janet are both master sewing people and are humorous and so informative.

    I purchased all the Islander videos when they were VHS tapes, and was anxious to have them again in DVD format.

    Like lots of folks who enjoyed Margaret Islander, I had the opportunity to attend a class of hers during a sewing guild expo, and find the videos useful and engaging always. She was a treasure and a font of knowledge.

    This excellent set of eight dvds covers all aspects of sewing professionally with closeup photography. From cutting a pattern, mitring, shirt making to zip insertion - and no pins in sight! The dvds are segmented so you can find exactly what you want. It is like having a tutor in the house.
    I highly recommend this set to all sewists - both amateur and professional.
    I only wish I had it years ago.

    As I am working my way through these videos I am continually putting the techniques to use in my garment and quilt work. It was well worth the investment for me, even though I've been sewing since age 9... for 57 years. I found Islander Sewing through the Jacket Express class on Craftsy. I have made two jackets from the pattern and get compliments on them every time I wear either jacket. My next goal is to make for myself a pair of slacks that fit and are comfortable!

    I only wish I had known Margaret Islander! She is such a patient teacher and presents her info in such a positive way, always anticipating problems and heading them off at the pass! These are wonderful DVDs and books-I highly recommend. I also loved Janet Pray and Rosemary's DVD on zippers. It was so great to have all the zipper apps in one place and they also presented things in such an orderly simple way, never assuming that you know anything so it is all clear! These products give you a lot of confidence which is half the battle in sewing!
