i'd like to suggest for those planning to attend sewing classes...mag start na rin kayo mag practice or better yet attempt to create a simple dress para madaling maintindihan yung lessons.  Malalaman mo agad kung saan ka nagkamali at madali mo rin ma-grasp yung pinagsasabi ng instructor mo kasi minsan sa totoo lang nakakalito. ;)

^thank you for the advice. i'm starting with a pair of pajamas. i can't dare to sew the top. i still need to learn how to perfect the pattern making.

if ever, i will have a business on sewing, i'd like to have this.

Kaht ba sis dito sa US ko nabili yong brother sewing machine ko?? san ko maaavail yong free class? ano kelangan nila? Thanks.

Kung nasa US ka, di pwede kasi dito sa Pinas ang lessons. But do check the store where you got it from.

I don't know if this belongs to this thread, but can someone happen to know where are other bag design/making workshops other than the ones offered in SOFA? Wala [textspeak!] sila offered this june besides the fact that it is 15k.

Thanks in advance  :-*

^ sis, thanks ha, tagal na tapos kaw lang ng answer  :D Thanks for the tip, more importantly, mas reasonable compared to other schools that offered the same course. Too bad na-fill up ko na sched ko during saturdays, anyway, maybe next time.

About your inquiry, you can try out the supplier of Juki and Brother industrial sewing machines along E. Rodriquez Avenue. Eto yata [textspeak!] malapit sa St. Luke's. Google Kimura Chavez Enterprise for more details.

Meron din daw sa pier, nakakachamba ng second hand industrial type.

I'm so glad we have this thread! I had my dressmaking course way back and it seems that I forgot how to draft a blouse pattern. I lost all of my notes since we move to another location. Is there a site or someone who can help/give me a draft pattern? ???

I've always wanted to take a short course on dressmaking. I know how to sew by hand and my stitches are pretty decent (thanks to a perfectionist HE teacher in Grade 6... hehe), but I still don't how to use a sewing machine...

This is definitely on my to do list for this year... :)

^^ ay, ang ganda naman ng designs nyan. parang ang sarap gumawa ng comforter.

sabi marami raw textiles sa cainta/taytay. normally, duon daw kumukuha ng supplies ang divisoria. di ko lang mapuntahan kasi ang layo.

for the location, google map.

Ask ko lang, paano kayo natuto gumamit ng makina? May nagturo ba sa inyo nung bata pa kayo?
