Local Places to Craft/Sew/Fun

With the holidays season right around the corner I get excited about all of the possible crafts I can create! I often look for local listings of craft workshops, sewing classes, demonstrations at local Home Depots or craft shows. I also look online for videos to offer me some direction with conquering those little sewing techniques that I am clueless about! Soon I will be hosting a Craft Night with some of my girlfriends. A night of crafts, cocktails/coffee and gossip!! Ohhh sooo cozy!

I have researched my local area for classes and workshops that you can take advantage of in you live in the South Florida area. Here are a few gems!
1.) Quilters Choice: 561-747-0525 in Jupiter, FL Great girls own this shop and everyone is always very friendly!
They offer all types of sewing classes that range in price from $20-$60: Beginner quilting, Basket classes, Gift Box class, Embroidery, Green Bag many great sewing projects to learn and have fun with. The new calender came out and most classes start in October but continue through December.
2.) Laura's Sewing and Vacuum 561-799-5228 on Northlake
Sew Like A Pro Classes $80 for 3 weeks at night to learn to sew an apron or throw pillows
These classes start in October. Call for more details.

Get your friends together and have some fun! Pick a project that everyone can do and each person can bring something to the group that can be shared. It's fun to get other people's input and get all the creative juices flowing!! Our Crafts-Cocktails & Gossip night will be some time in October. I will be sure and post some pics of our fun and the projects we design!!
