I’m the founder of the popular blog Sweet Red Poppy™ and the course Ready, Set, Sew! and Ready, Set, Sew! Serger Edition.
I've been sewing since I was a little girl. I fell in love with the ability to create something incredible from fabric.
While attending university, I studied Clothing Construction and Pattern Making. This is where I gained my sewing expertise and knowledge of technique.
I have a passion for sharing my love of sewing with everyone around me!
I'm fascinated by making difficult tasks much easier for everyone through tips, tricks and hacks!

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ONLINE SERGER COURSES?
This course builds upon itself in each module by teaching you important skills and techniques and then allowing you to master them. Each technique is reinforced through a series of videos, printables, and worksheets. As you progress through the course, you will gain knowledge on various skills and ultimately put them to use in the final projects. Each module is supported by video as well as written instruction allowing you to reinforce your skills as you learn them.
I'M NEW TO SEWING, CAN I TAKE THIS COURSE?
Yes! You do not need any sewing experience to take this course! I will walk you through everything you need to know to begin sewing on a serger.
HOW IS READY, SET, SEW! SERGER EDITION DIFFERENT THAN READY, SET, SEW!?
Ready, Set, Sew, Serger Edition focuses on using a serger to construct different projects, while Ready, Set, Sew! focuses on using a sewing machine.
Ready, Sew, Set! Serger Edition is a robust course that contains more instruction and video content than Ready, Set, Sew!
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM YOUR BLOG POSTS OR YOUTUBE VIDEOS?
This content was designed specifically for this course and for sergers. It is not available on Youtube or on the blog. This course will teach you exactly what you need to know to be successful with a serger. It won't leave any room for guessing.
This course is an ad-free experience where you are directed from topic to topic. You will gain skills, then try them out, and continue on to more challenging topics. It's like having me in your sewing room with you cheering you along the entire way.
WHAT SIZES ARE THE PDF PATTERNS AVAILABLE IN?
All of the sewing patterns offered in this course are available in baby, child, teen, women's, and women's plus sizes.
WHY ARE YOU LIMITING ENROLLMENT?
I limit enrollment to allow the best possible experience for my students. This allows me to answer their questions, help them if they get stuck along the way, and focus on one group of students at a time. I only open my course a few times a year, so don't miss out!
I’ve had my overlocker for years, but I am self taught and I’ve never really been that confident in using it, cleaning it or looking after it apart from really basic stitches. Going through all the modules of the course, I now know so much I didn’t before and I am much more confident about using my overlocker more and making the most of having one.
I love that there is a video for each module as well as the really handy and straight forward printables for everything. If I get stuck with something I can just quickly grab it and find the right information super quick.
This course and Kim’s friendly, supportive guidance has given me my sewjo back! Thanks so much Kim! Your Ready, Set, Sew! Serger course, just like all your other courses is great not just for beginners but also for people like me who need that confidence and knowledge boost.
Ready, Set, Sew! Serger Edition is the perfect instructional course for seamstresses of any experience level. The course is broken down into step-by-step and easy-to-follow videos which allow you to learn at your own pace.
This course taught me several new stitches I was previously intimidated by. It even comes complete with several projects to test your skills on. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn to sew with a serger or who are looking to expand their current skillset. You won’t be disappointed.
