Who do I contact if I have additional questions regarding specific class content?

You may find the instructor’s email address at the end of your class handout. If it is not in the handout, then email us directly at and we will happily answer your question.

How many times can I view a specific video in my Love of Knowledge account?

You can view each video as many times as you want as long as your Love of Knowledge account is active.

I have a Love of Knowledge membership, but the website is trying to charge me for the classes. I thought with my membership there was no charge for the classes.

Check the website you are on. You may be on the Sew at Home website instead of the Love of Knowledge website. The Love of Knowledge website pulls some of its classes from the Sew at Home website, but gives you access to them at no additional charge. If you are asked to add to cart, checkout or use an access code, you are on the Sew at Home website. Click here to go to the Love of Knowledge website.

Is there a way to fast forward or rewind the videos?

Yes. After you have started to play the video, simply left click in the time line bar (bottom of the video) and scroll to the desired place in the video.

I have a SEW @ HOME access code that I purchased separately or that came with a Baby Lock/Designer's Gallery product. Can I use this code for a video class?

Yes, and here's how:

  1. Enter your regular SEW @ HOME access code numbers in the discount codes window (with the dashes) on the left side of the cart page.
  2. Click the apply coupon button • IMPORTANT: If you have more than one access code you want to use, then you must check out separately for each class to apply each code. You can use one discount code per order. • IMPORTANT: if you want to pay with a [credit card] for some classes and use SEW @ HOME access codes for others, you must purchase each class separately.

I lost my connection when I was watching a video. What do I need to do?

You are probably having an issue with your internet. When your internet connection is available again, log back into your account; locate your videos on the My Account page and resume watching.

How can I search for Love of Knowledge classes within my account?

Search for words in the class's title. If the name of a machine appears in the title of the class, that class is machine-specific. Other classes are more generic and may be applicable to multiple machines.

How long can I view my Sew at Home videos?

Videos purchased through your Sew at Home account are available to watch for an unlimited amount of time.
