Hello!  I'm trying to find a not too expensive sampling course (i.e. collars / cuffs / zips etc) - either a short course or an evening course.  The only things I can find at the minute are more than 300 for 10 lessons - has anyone found anything cheaper?

thanks in advance for any help ...

It might be the wrong time of year, but check your local council's learning center (or community college, etc). I found Tower Hamlets had a couple pattern cutting courses last year that were about 30, but they filled up before I could register. The local learning places seem to have enrolments in Sept/Oct and then again in January, so you could look into enrolling for the new year..

ooh! Can you tell me what you thought of it please?

I'm a pretty experienced sewer but I wanted to know more about drafting. I mean, I can alter existing patterns pretty easily but if I see something with a complex cut and I can't quite take it from 3D to a flat pattern in my mind, and that's what I'd like to be able to do. Is the Tower Hamlets one too basic for my needs or do you think it'd be useful? I'm looking at this course, which I think must be the one you took?
