My mom talked me through my first blouse pattern last summer, but since then I've just been scouring the web looking for tutorials. Sew Mama Sew has tons of links to all sorts of tutorials for sewers of all levels. (I'm new to Craftster, so I don't know if there are links here as well, sorry.)
I think the best thing to do is decide what you're most interested in sewing (clothes, pillows, bags, etc) and start looking for tutorials and patterns in that genre. That's what I did. I never thought I'd be interested in quilting, now I'm in 2 quilting bees and a member of my local quilt guild.
Good luck and have fun!
