I was planning on making a Pinkerton from beginning to end today, but was feeling a bit stir-crazy and decided to visit Stitches. It's the closest fabric store to home; I walked. It's a little less than a mile from my flat.

There are a few classes, starting with very basic sewing and progressing through more intermediate level projects. They also have knitting classes; the gal at the counter said their class space is small and the classes are limited to about four people. I consider that a good thing as teaching craft skills really takes a decent amount of one-on-one attention, which is difficult in larger groups.
If you're near Broadway, stop by. Shop local, Seattle!
