Mood offers sewing classes... Didjaknow that?

Did you know you can take classes at Mood?  As you know, since moving on to Mood Fabrics, the former owner of this blog is making sure everyone knows big things are a'happenin' on Mood's ever-improving website! When chatting with Meg one day, she let me know that the classes can also be found on their website, which I hadn't noticed before! I had previously only seen the signs in the store advertising classes... So, while looking at their class offerings online, I came across this one, which is one I'm sure many of you would find interesting. Click through for details on this class and more....

How to Sew Knits Like a Pro

Here's the "Psst..." part - The classes are affordable, small, and taught by people who really know their stuff... There are others, but this one speaks to a particular subject I know is a challenge for so many!

Now, of course Mood offers knit fabrics, and their wool knits are especially appealing right now.

Here are some other places to get some great knits right now:

Kashi at Metro Textiles has some knits I scouted out on our Speakeasy tour that are just TO DIE for at the moment.

B&J fabrics. Seriously. Yes, it has a reputation for being expensive. But they've got plenty of really wonderful cotton stretch knits that are so completely AFFORDABLE right now...

Happy shopping!

While I can appreciate your comment(s), there are many different learning experiences, environments, and styles a person can choose. I have removed your comment comparing Mood's classes to those offered at institutions like FIT, because they are serving different audiences.

I'd love to be there long enough sometime to attend a class, especially one that included standing in the aisle pulling fabrics afterward. The knits class sounds very informative and that price is CRAZY-low!

Just strolling around Mood and watching what's being cut & bought can be an education, too! I get the worst cases of "cutting-counter envy" in that place...where did they get that bolt, why didn't I see that, etc. etc.

Yes, you can learn so much, just watching and listening to other people!
