When I lived in the US, I often took stitching classes with my local guilds and I went to Calloway School of Needlearts twice and attended EGA National Seminars quite a few times. In Japan, I haven't had those kinds of opportunities, but I have taken other types of craft classes since moving here seven years ago, most of them while traveling. Here is a recap on classes, with links to the original posts.
