The Product Review ::
I was recently blessed to be able to review one of the DVD's in the Homestead Blessing series. Homestead Blessings is a series hosted by the West ladies showing how to do homestead skills. They have a DVD for cooking, canning, quilting, sewing, soap making, bread making, candle making, herbs, gardening,  dairy delights, sewing, and crafting. Each film features Mrs. West, and her daughters Jasmine, Cecilia and Hannah. For more information of The Homestead Blessing Series, or to view trailers click HERE!

Homestead Blessings: The Eleven Pack - Hosted by the West Ladies

The movie I choose the review is the sewing DVD. We recently got a sewing machine and I jumped at the opportunity to review this movie full of tips, advice and ideas! We already own the cooking DVD and have really enjoyed it so I was sure I'd enjoy the sewing DVD! I thought you'd all be interested so I've attached the trailer below so check it out!

Homestead Blessings: The Art of Sewing
Here is the product description from the website: 

This inspiring and education DVD teaches a wide-range of fun and useful sewing skills. Expand your knowledge  of sewing with helpful and down-to-earth instruction The West Ladies are known for, and develop a wide assortment of useful skills that will assist in making wonderful sewing creations.

Here is a fun excerpt from the film showing a portion on their rag quilt project:

The DVD arrived very quickly, I got it within three days! I really enjoyed watching the DVD and found it to be very helpful and full of great sewing tips as well as sewing projects that an level sewer could accomplish! On this DVD the West Ladies show how to make a doll blanket and pillow, a tiered skirt, feminine blouse, and rag quilt. They also had some neat "extras" were they showed past creations they made from simple things such as drapes, bed sheets and tablecloths all made through simply altering it a bit! They also show neat variations to add spice and feminine to your projects. I also found the extra bonus feature for the basic tools you will need when sewing to be helpful as well! The West Ladies did a wonderful job being very informational and giving lots of helpful tips. The movie was very well made for having been made in their home and gave wonderful angles as well as close up views to help you easily see how they did the projects, making it clear and easy to do them yourself! I'd recommend this DVD to anyone interested in sewing! I'd like to say  big thanks to Franklin Springs for allowing me to review this DVD!
