Where to go for sewing classes?

sewing machine closeupFeeling crafty, Julianne emails:

Recently I've been on a DIY streak, and I realized I lack skills needed to do it myself. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a sewing class in the Capital Region.

Got a suggestion for Julianne? Please share!

Check out the Sewing Sisters
http://sewingsistersny.com/ (also search for them on Facebook). Some Hellions have taken classes there and very much enjoyed them!

JoAnn's hosts sewing classes. They're in the Target Plaza/Northway Mall in Albany.

For quilting lessons (which teach/utilize basic sewing skills), try The Joyful Quilter in Glenville.

Julianne - Hudson Valley has a whole series of sewing class as part of the community ed. I am halfway through a two session intro class. The next one they are doing is a three session technique class. If you already have some experience, that might be a good one for you. It's a weekend intensive format, which is nice. https://www.hvcc.edu/communityed/fall/arts.html#7

If you are looking for quilting classes, they are relatively easy to find. Basic apparel classes are easy to find as well. If you want to take draping and pattern making classes, they are much harder to find.

My boyfriend put up a whiteboard in our shower (thinking he could get his ideas down while in the shower)- however the steam allows about 20 seconds of writing time- so now its more of a love note board- I love pulling back the shower curtain and seeing a cute drawing and note!
