Question DetailsAsked on 10/18/2013

I'm looking for a "How to Sew" class.

I learned to sew in a high school Home Economics class. Those skills are ancient. I am interested in sewing for my family's benefit. I'm a fast learner. Sewing garments and possibly curtains would be two areas of interest. I would also be interested in making cushions for an outside swing. If possible, I would like to learn on my own sewing machine. It may need to be replaced. Thank you for your help,

I was going to say check your local Senior Activity Center, as they normally have sewing machines and sewing classes, as well as volunteers who can help you learn or with special projects. The $50 or so annual dues would be no more than an hour or so in your home with a paid teacher.

Occasionally neighborhood recreation centers have sewing classes too - check with your local Parks and Recreation head office.

Locall sewing clubs (check for flyers at sewing and knitting shops andfabric stores like JoAnn's) might be able to hook you up with an instructor too.

If you have neighbor friends or coworkers you might askk them if they know a sewing fanatic who might be interested in socializing with you or making a few bucks teaching.

To learn on your own machine, unless you want to lug it there and back every day you go, you might still try them or a sewing machine sales shop - they might know someone who would come to your home anbd teach you. Other alternative is sewing clases at a sewing machine center which uses same brand/model machine as you.
