If I could free up one degree of craft freedom in my life, I would - hands down - take sewing lessons. And I just wish I lived close enough to LuckyStitches in Haydenville (just outside of Northampton), where New York trained artist Zanne Blair teaches everything from the basics (hems, zippers), to construction and embellishments (t-shirts, jeans, appliqué), to holiday 101 (costumes, tree skirts).

UPDATE 11/22/2008: Sadly for Massachusetts moms, Zanne Blair of LuckyStitches has relocated to the West Coast. For any of our Seattle-area readers, keep an eye out, as she hopes to reopen in Seattle soon!
