I’ve been sewing for over 30 years, but you can always learn to be better, so I’ve always sought out places to learn sewing. Thought I’d start listing a few of my favorite sources of learning.

I hope if people stumble on this blog, that you’ll add your favorite learning sources. Here are my favorite in-person and online sewing courses.

Seneca College, Toronto, Continuing Education courses for Fashion Certificate. http://www.senecacollege.ca/ce/creative/fashion/fashion-studies-certificate.html I’ve taken a couple of the sewing courses, and have learned some interesting commercial methods. Most memorable is a lined skirt with back vent, where the lining is sewn to the vent and totally hides all raw edges. Have looked all over the place, and have never seen the technique explained anywhere else. Awesome!

http://www.craftsy.com. Great courses, I’ve enrolled in quite a few of the sewing courses and find them all extremely high quality.

http://www.patternreview.com. The Contemporary Couture Jacket is my first course, and I’m loving it.

http://www.threadsmagazine.com. I purchased the Insider subscription, which gives me an electronic version of Threads magazine, plus all kinds of video’s and articles. NOthing better!

Will explore blogs in a further post.
