I thought it was useful to show the value of pinning, particularly for difficult curves, and to show that you can be careful and still get puckers. I do wish the video had covered what to do after you rip out a stitch (how do you prevent the original seam from not coming unraveled? how do you make the new seam line up with your old seam so you don't see the mistake?).

As someone just starting out with my sewing machine, I was able to follow very easily. Will definitely return to it. Great video!
