  8. Greetings sistren- Im starting to take on the full way of life so am trying to be more self sufficient. I was so impressed and influenced. Iandi was ready to get up and cook the new meals and sew. But i remembered i hadn't sown since middle school. Iandi would love to know of any beginner videos sistren that might help. Also i just want to say keep to your way sistren because i so look up to you now like a big sister,as i know other younger sistas are as well. Plus i know you are doing good works for Jah. I will check here daily and hope to hear back from you soon sistren. One Love

    1. Give thanks Krystal! I pray JAH will keep you firm on the trod of RasTafari!
      I don't know any videos off hand but I can recommend searching YouTube for sewing techniques "how to sew..." and what you need to know, and you are sure to find some information. also suscribe to DIYMeesha and GianniL channels, they have good beginner sewing tutorials as well. the internet has lots of info so you can find what you need! I plan to get a good sewing book with all the techniques inside.
