I've heard of a couple knitting groups, but I was wondering if there are any sewing groups, not completely centered around quilting (not that I have anything against quilting, I love it, but I like other sewing projects too. :p)?

I live in the Goose Creek area, so getting to West Ashley or Mount Pleasant is a lot of gas, I'd love if there was a meeting somewhere in the North area or s'ville.

Have you tried asking at People, Places and Quilts?  I know you said not a quilting group but they have other classes and group meetings, I think...They are in downtown Summerville and if nothing else, it would be a good excuse to go buy more fabric!

You totally should!!  They have fantastic fabric and tons of books!  Seriously, tons of fabric - 2 stories worth!

Yeah PPQ is a great store to go to regarding sewing and stuff..and it beats going to N. Chas. I know the ladies down there (my mom is a frequent visitor and her best friend works there) and they are so nice. They have classes going on all the time in many different areas, like quilting, sewing, purse making, book making. Just go to the desk and ask them about their classes. I'm sure if you ask them they can tell you about sewing groups and stuff.

And yes their fabric is AmAzIng! But it IS pricey. Most regular fabric is about $9 a yard.
