Hello. I am wondering if there is anyone out there that could give me a brush up on sewing. Or if anyone knows where i could obtain this information? I live between Detroit and Toledo, Ohio. Thanks in advance for any info.
My ultimate objective is to make draperies.... my passion  Wink

We have a WONDERFUL store in the Detroit area that offers drapery classes as well as much, much more. Haberman's in Royal Oak. The fabric alone will make you drool.

But, since you live kinda far from there, have you looked into JoAnn. They also offer a plethora of classes, although, I have never taken any there myself. I'm currently taking a pattern drafting class at Haberman.

You say you are between Detroit and Toledo...Monroe County maybe?  Try any Joann's or a quilting shop.  Most of them have classes.  Alot of the High Schools and Community Colleges have adult enrichment classes.  The name of a city would be helpful.

I'll third the recommendation on Joann's. I believe they regularly have home dec classes, and you can do a search by location on their website ( www.joann.com ).  They also post their class schedules online (look for the CU- Creative University in the far right column, and underneath, it has a link to the class schedule).  I just looked, and there are CU stores in Roseville, Allen Park, Novi, Westland, and Taylor, though the only home dec class they seem to be running at the moment is table covers.  Undecided
