    Do you have any stores that sell machines in your area? Sometimes they will give classes (if you pay for them) even if you do not buy a machine. When I worked at House of Fabrics we had many customers taking the sewing classes. They brought their own machines or used one in the workroom.We even had childrens classes. Some of the children, both boys and girls were as young as 6. They loved to watch the embroidery machine sew their names on their projects. I would love to do sewing classes here at home but we are out in the woods and right now the driveway is covered with snow. We are on top of a hill here in PA so it looks like the winter has started.

      *Also look in the phone book under your County Offices section for the County Extension Agent. They normally offer sewing classes. Check them out.

        *Deb, - some of the local high schools offer night classes in sewing. Also if there is a JoAnn's fabrics near you maybe they offer classes (I work for one that does). Also some independent fabric stores offer classes. Or check in your local fabric store and find out if someone has left a card concerning teaching classes (we get them all the time!)Good luck -happy huntingDiane

          *Deb,There are many talented teachers out there who are eager to introducee you to the creative world of sewing, and the personal power it offers you. Do not become discouraged however if you at first cannot find one. Try local shops, and not so local shops. Ask your local American Sewing Guild for suggestions as well. In addition an experienced sewer or a dressmaker may be abole to recommend someone. Where do you live? In the meantime, read everything you can, don't be afraid to experiment, and visit this site often for advice. Best of luck to you!
