Also, does anyone know of a good place to take sewing classes? Or to affordable places to get their sewing machine serviced?

I am planning on taking one of the all-year sewing courses offered here: http://www.chinooklearningservices.com/ContEd/AdultSubsections/SewingHouseHome.html
They are quite affordable (less than $13/class) and I have taken a class with them before and the instructor was great but I would like to see what other options are out there. And I need to get my machine serviced before the class starts but the places I have looked into so far seem really expensive.

I have this collection of Make It Yourself books from the 70s that are full of knitting, sewing, crocheting, creweling patterns and other things. There are 20 books in the series and I think I am missing two. Anyway, I have way too much stuff and I was wondering if another local craftster would like to take them off my hands and have fun looking through them for a while. I think some of the patterns would be easily modernized but I don't see myself getting to them anytime soon.

Anyway, if anyone is interested send me a pm and you can have them, all you need to do is pick them up. Here is an image of some that someone is selling on ebay: http://i12.ebayimg.com/01/i/000/83/a4/03f7_1_b.JPG (that someone isn't me btw - I just thought if anyone was interested they might want to see a photo).

that's so funny. I have the same set of books. I think I'm missing 3 though. I should check which ones when I get home... or maybe I should get rid of mine too!

hello hello
i'm visiting calgary from whitehorse in a couple weeks - i saw a list of wool shops in another topic (!!) but was wondering about indie fashion..
any cool shops i should check out? or even an area of town for such things
[for example if someone was visiting victoria bc, i'd direct them down johnston street for smoking lily and and the other little shops that carry canadian designs]

thanks!

There are a couple of area you may want to check out.  Kensington and 10th some great shops.  Of course there is 17th ave (the red mile).  A good place to find that special something.  I would also head over to 4th street lots of shops and if you are here in May you can take in the lilac festival.

Have fun here and i hope you enjoy your stay

Hi, I am new to Calgary. I am from toronto and I know there we have an area downtown where there are streets and streets of fabric stores. I was wondering if there is anything like that here in Calgary. Even if it's not like a huge area and just one small section of the city, please do let me know. Any information will help. thank you!

Sadly we don't have much for fabric stores other than Fabricland... and there's none downtown!

Thought I would try and kick this thread into gear again. Has anyone checked out the Calgary Artist's Market yet? I keep missing it but here is the link:

http://calgaryartistsmarket.blogspot.com

It is supposed to be on the 3rd Saturday of every month at the Carpenter's Union Hall which is in Kensington - nice and close the the Sunnyside C-train station.

Anyone know of anything else like this going on in town?
