I was wondering if anyone know of any good sewing courses/schools/instructors that are in my area? I work Full time Monday-Friday. I live West of Montreal (Pincourt). I DO NOT want to go with the rush hour, as I have 2 little ones that I have to pick up after work from 2 different day cares. I was at Fabricville in Dorval, but I am burnt out. It was more you work on your own project and she helps you. I want a more organized instruction, stretch or bathing suits. I am not a beginner and I do not want to waste my $$ on a class that will show me things I already know.

Most classes are during the daytime, doesn't anyone work, I ask? Or they are in the east end (uh, traffic! Yikes).

Thanks!

Or if anyone knows of any great online sewing classes. I did not see any for bathing suits on this site, or maybe I just don't know where to look, lol

"Le Coin Artisanal" in Beaconsfield has sewing classes from time to time, but they do mostly take place during the day - the owners are responsive, so it wouldn't hurt to ask if they'd consider offering a class or tow on occasion in the evening. Out in NDG, there's Celine Ross: http://www.ecoledecouture.com/. I can't tell you whether the classes are valuable or even offered in english, but the company has been around for a while. In the east end, I like Effiloche and its owner, Ginette. I know it's far, but she has such an eye for fabrics that I feel it's worth the trip if only just to visit the store.

Online, Craftsy and Creative Bug offer classes which I've heard tons of good comments about...

Thank you, I did not know about Le Coin Artisanal. I will have to check it out. They seem to offer more knitting get togethers.

Yes, they do - they started out as a general craft store but increased their knitting inventory due to demand. However, one of the owners sews (quilts, mostly) and bought out quite a bit of stock from a quilting store in Pointe Claire last year. I think they're quite open to suggestions.
While we're on the subject of sewing in the west island, do you know of any stores apart from fabricville? I'm in Beaconsfield and need a pretty good reason to venture out to St-Hubert...

There are many, depends on what you require. I made a detailed list on my Blog, and here and A@E is worth the trek for notions in bulk, Kai scissors that are way cheaper, threads...

I LOVE Chabanel and St-Laurent. The prices are phenomenal! And St-Hubert has a lot of great finds. Club Tissus in St-Hubert is the largest Club Tissus, I would recommend that one. They have a lot of material and notions. I like Club Tissus for their notions/sewing supplies.

Stretch Text Stretch Text is the best place for spandex and stretch fabrics. The prices are just as crazy as their selections.

Sorry, I should have been clearer - I was talking about stores located in the west island. I'm familiar with stores in the garment district but I've only lived in Beaconsfield for the past couple of years, so really don't know of any apart from fabricville. I'm a garment sewer and I prefer nice quality natural fibers...

There are no other fabric stores on the West Island. There used to be Bouclairs, but they don't sell fabric or notions anymore. Unfortunately you will have to make the treck out.
