Hi Everyone,
I live in South Florida and i can not find anywhere to get sewing lessons. I am a beginner and have sewn very little. I just got my machine on 7/5/08 and that same weekend made 4 pillows and thats about the only sewing experience i have. Yesterday i went out and bought some fabric and a pattern. I already started following the directions and cutting out the pattern and pinning it to the fabric. But i would love to have some formal classes. So if anyone that views this and lives in South Florida please let me know if you know someone or some place that gives lessons. Thank you. Cheesy

The regional boards might be of more use.

I know this post is really old but in case anyone else was wondering my teacher has her own store in the Ft. Lauderdale area where she also gives sewing lessons.  I think it's really overpriced but if you had the money and were desperate to learn this is the website http://www.sassybb.com/sewing_classes.

I give sewing classes/lessons in Hollywood. My classes are only $15 an hour or less depending on how many hours you buy. I love teaching - giving my knowledge to others. If you would like more information take a look at my website https://learn2sewflorida.com/  and my blog http://learn2sewflorida.blogspot.com/

hey - I know this is an old post but I just discovered this forum tonight. Don't know where you live but there are classes through Palm Beach County - see link below:

if you live in the county you would get a catalog in the mail automatically. I think the come out quarterly or so...

I just started taking sewing classes at SassyBB in Fort Lauderdale and I absolutely love it! The teacher is amazing and makes sewing seem really easy. For the amount that I'm learning, the prices are great. Since the classes are private lessons, I get to arrange my lessons around my schedule and ask a million questions. I thought about going to college for fashion, but I'll be able to launch my fashion line by taking classes at SassyBB.

I learned how to sew with Cindy at Learn 2 Sew in Hollywood. She is a very gifted patient teacher. You will learn a lot with her. I didn't have to make a skirt or apron. I was allowed to make anything I wanted. I made my daughter a dress since I want to do this as a business making children clothing. Cindy gave me all the knowledge I needed from how to get my website started to advertising my business. She helped me on many different levels not only everything to do with sewing.

She makes it easy to attend by offering several classes a week. You make your own schedule to fit your lifestyle. She has morning and evening classes. I needed morning classes since my kids are in school. She only has 6 students in a class at a time. It isn't often she has a full class. There were times when I was her only student. She let's you either pay as you go or buy a package deal with very affordable prices.

If you would like to see what her students are saying about her sewing classes check out the guest book on her website https://www.learn2sewflorida.com/Guestbook.php  I'm not the only one who loves to go to Learn 2 Sew. You can also check out her blog to see what's been going on at the studio right now. She even had a Project Runway contest and gave away free sewing classes to everyone who entered the contest. http://learn2sewflorida.blogspot.com/ - Thanks for my free hours Cindy!

It's a fun place to learn to sew - and she has easy online enrollment which I just love  https://www.learn2sewflorida.com/Home_Page.php

Hi.  I'm new to this board.  I know your original post is old, but thought I'd post here if it would help you or any new sewers looking for classes.  I currently take classes through the Palm Beach County school system - the Community Educator.  I take the classes that are at Atlantic High School in Delray.  I really enjoy them, and the teacher is great.  Plus, the classes are very affordable, and they take sewers at all levels.
