Anyone Can Learn to Adjust the Fit of Clothing, Thanks to Video Lessons Created by Woman in Business

Walnutport, PA – Clothing purchased at a store right off the rack often does not fit quite right, but most people lack the skills to make the minor adjustments that are needed.

Pamela Tripaldi has changed that with a simple, easy way for anyone to learn to alter clothing for a better fit and appearance. After many years of experience teaching the skills of sewing, Tripaldi has created DVD and VHS video instructions designed for people with no sewing experience.

“So many people just want to learn enough about sewing so they can make basic repairs and adjustments to their clothing. People want to look good, but they do not want the inconvenience and expense of going to the tailor for alterations each time they buy clothes,” explained Tripaldi.

Tripaldi is a work-at-home mom who first taught sewing lessons, and then expanded her business by putting her lessons on video. Now people from anywhere in the world can learn from her through her company, You Can Make It, Inc. She has also created a network of over 500 sewing instructors using her methods of teaching.

Her new “Make It Fit” videos are short, easy to follow, and easy to view again and again when reinforcement is needed.

“The videos and the instructors teach the latest tricks, short cuts, and techniques. But most of all, we make sewing fun and easy. What a tremendous feeling of satisfaction when you make an article of clothing fit better and look better for yourself or someone in your family,” said Tripaldi.

The video series was created for those with little or no sewing experience. Lessons are presented in an easy to understand format with step by step instructions included. The DVDs enable students to learn at their own pace, and review past lessons for reinforcement.

Students who learn from a local teacher also receive the DVD to take home, along with an instruction book. It is a hands-on program. Students learn by doing, not from a lecture. There is also a separate, more detailed course available for those who want to learn even more about sewing.

“You Can Make It was started in 1994 with the sole intent of creating sewers. We have structured our business to make this as easy as possible for anyone to learn to sew, and also for others to teach sewing,” said Tripaldi.

Students, sewers interested in becoming instructors, and stores who want to offer the videos to customers can find information at the company web site
