New York fashion trends are like the announcements that come over the subway: extremely hard to follow. Blaze your own sartorial trail with today's deal from Brooklyn Yarn Cafe in Bushwick, which will equip you with the skills to make your own pieces. Pay $59 (regularly $129), and you'll score a three-hour basic sewing class with all the necessary materials and equipment. Available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, these hands-on sessions will school you in machine basics, pattern reading, and rudimentary sewing and finishing techniques; by the end of class, you will have made an item like an apron or bag. To really boost your acumen, pay $150 (regularly $300) for a five-week introductory sewing program that teaches newbies more advanced techniques (think: seam finishing and hemming). Whatever you choose, you'll be on track to learning how to create your own unique clothes.
