When you can't find/afford/travel/wait to get the class you might like, don't forget to check the rental libraries! has how-to videos, and the sewing ones are located under the 'Arts and Crafts' heading. If more folks request/rent sewing titles, they will add still more to their lisings. (not connected to Smartflix) has a couple sewing videos too.

Of course there are actual classes here on, but when you can't find or wait for what you want, rental is a nice option. Plus DVD's allow you to rewind and rewatch that "tricky part".

If anyone knows of any other sources, please share, I'm sure we'd all like to know.

(maybe there is a rental business idea here ladies?!!)

Renee S Good idea--I forgot to mention the good ole library system!

Sana: Both Smartflix (which has a lot of sewing videos + quilting +more) and Netflix have a "contact us" link at the BOTTOM of their pages. That's what I've used at Smartflix to request titles, I don't know why you couldn't try that at Netflix. If you find another way, please let us know. Thanks!

Good idea. Do you know how to request titles at Netflix? It used to be you clicked on the "Contact Us" button at the bottom of the page and among the choices on the next page would be "Request Titles"; you clicked on that and wrote your requests in the box that came up. Now they've changed things and I can't find "Request Titles" anywhere.

Be sure and check with your local library. If you don't see what you're looking for ask a librarian. They might be able to get your dvd/video through interlibrary loan from another library. My local library does not charge for interlibrary loans, some may charge a small fee.
