 Make It Sew FAQ


Every Tuesday from 6 - 7 PM CST, join us live on YouTube for Make It Sew. We have demos, new products, product recommendations, show and tells, special guests, and so much more. We even host a giveaway on the show EVERY week!

As you watch, you'll have the opportunity to purchase the machines, fabrics, threads, kits, and other products we talk about directly through our show - right on YouTube.

In this guide, we'll tell you how to register for Make It Sew, watch the live show on YouTube, and hopefully answer any questions you may have about the show and how it works.

Our goal with every episode of Make It Sew is to give you all the tips, tricks, and products you need, with a few laughs along the way, to be the best and most efficient quilter you can be.

As Joan says, if there's an easier way to do something, she'll find it and she'll share it with you! It's not laziness - it's efficiency!

 

Frequently Asked Questions


Watch Make It Sew on YouTube


I can't find the show. Where is it?
We stream from our sister store's YouTube channel, Quilters HQ. If you're the Quilters HQ YouTube channel page at 6 PM CST and you still don't see the live stream, we may be running a bit behind and have not started the show yet. In that case, just refresh the page every few minutes until we get started.

The video is blurry, lagging or pausing frequently. What's going on?
Since the show is live streamed through YouTube (It's live! Anything can happen!), the video may not be the best quality at times. This could be due to a variety of different factors, including internet speed, connection issues, issues with YouTube, etc. If you're having trouble with video quality, the best thing to do is to try exiting the video and re-joining.
