Hello all! 

Everytime I see a great craft for clothes, (Sweater into a wedding dress!  Tshirt into pants!) I get the urge to do them.  The problem is that while I can sew by hand, I don't know how to use a sewing machine, or how to use a pattern.  Is anyone giving lessons?  Any places that offer to teach people how to sew clothes?  Even anyone who teaches people simply how to use a sewing machine?  If there's nothing, maybe that would be a great on the side job...I would definately, be down for that.

What area of the state are you in?  I have also been trying to learn to use my sewing machine / read patterns.  I took a class at Threadneedle Fabrics in Essex Junction and it was pretty helpful in getting started.

My place is usually tidier than this.

Actually, I'm interested in starting up just such a place, a community craft studio with an emphasis on textile crafts, in the central vermont area.... Smiley
