I am looking to take sewing classes and i'm having a hard time finding ANY that are more advanced than just "beginner". Everything i seem to find are classes for people and their specific machine they just purchased from that store. I'm kinda looking for a place to learn how to make clothes or just a little more advanced. Any suggestions?

Try the Sedgwick County Extension Service, located at 21st & Tyler (I think.)  They leave their class schedules at my store, JoAnns-they are excellent.  Also, Needle Nook Fabrics is a great resource & shop, it's in Boulevard Plaza, on Lincoln, just east of George Washington Boulevard.
& that's really about it.

I don't know exactly what kinds of classes you want, but here are a couple of suggestions...

Anne St. Clair, at Needle Nook Fabrics, teaches bra making, lingerie, and working with knits.

The Wichita chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG) has several monthly meetings with demos and talks, including some at night, and offers workshops, shopping trips and other sewing-related goodies (including discounts at lots of local and national retailers).  Approx once a year, they bring in a nationally-recognized teacher for lecture, demo or hands-on classes.  Despite the "guild" in the name, it's not just for professionals, or even just people who sew really well (or they would never have let me in!).  There's a blog with bare bones schedule and contact info at www.asgwichita.wordpress.com

Bev at the Sewing Center also offers classes.
