need to find a sewing teacher in florida

Jean | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Check around at shops that sell fabric and sewing machines to see if they give classes or know of anyone who would be willing to tutor you.  Check with the local High School  for adult education classes.

    val- All Calico Corners here in FLA have classes, as do Hannafords. (Central FLA for sure) I know I was having trouble with a collar once, brought it to Calico Corners and had employees AND customers helping me with it- we had a good laugh.

    Hi val...I looked in my PACC book to see if there were any instructors for Florida and found a few. One is in Fort Lauderdale.

    Another is in Marianna. I knew of one in Naples, but she died just this past year of a car accident. I emailed her all the time and when she died I was very sad. She had a young child and husband. That was so tragic.

    The web page for the PACC referral is


    Also HSA has a referral too for teachers of beginning sewing.

    Their web page is sewing.org. I'll go there now and see what is

    for Florida and write back in another post if I can find anything.

    Hi again I copied and pasted off the Pati Palmer's site, too.

    http://www.palmerpletsch.com These are CSI, certified sewing instructors. They know the ins and outs of pattern fitting by the tissue drape method as well as beginning sewing.
