I should have posted about this ages ago when I first signed up, but I recently got going taking a class at the Boston Vintage Factory, which describes itself as "a D.I.Y. studio dedicated to keeping alive vintage fashion design and techniques (particularly between the 1930′s to late 50′s) as well as retro-inspired lifestyle subjects such as hair and make-up, art and dance." It's called the Pin-Up Pencil Skirt, designed for absolute beginners or those who want to brush up on their basic skills while going through the steps of making a pencil skirt. The first session was last week, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is exactly the sort of thing I've been looking for, expert instruction to guide me through developing my sewing skills. I know some things, but it's extremely helpful to have someone knowledgeable to show me technique and point out my dumb mistakes. I think this is really going to help me with projects in the future, especially given the trouble I've had interpreting patterns in the past. You show check out the website and see if anything interests you; besides sewing there are classes on makeup, yoga, burlesque, and more. I've got the second session today. Kristin is a really good teacher, so I'm looking forward to it.

They also have classes in sewing of various sorts, and other crafty things. If you want to use their machines etc. I owe you a day pass from your NPCing.
