I live in the city of Toronto and was wandering if anyone new of somewhere I can learn to draw patterns. I'm just looking for a basic class for personal use, not to become a proffessional designer. All the courses I have found in the colleges are fairly expensive and meant for professionals. I could take classes anywhere in the greater Toronto area.
Thank you.

I would love to go to that show, but flying to Toronto is a bit of a hassle, then finding a room, blah, blah, blah. If only we had something a little closer.

go to you local library and check out books on Flat Pattern Making. It is a fairly simple concept to understand but time consuming making a sloper.

You can find some information on net with a little searching.
