Although well versed in the realm of chemical processes, the one flaw in the design of Dr. Frankenstein's monster was the doctor's own dodgy sewing abilities. Learn how to sew like a madman with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a sewing-machine check and a basic sewing lesson at Sew Portland (a $25 value).
Sew Portland serves both novice needlers and savvy stitch gurus alike with myriad sewing classes and supplies. Dust off neglected stitching apparatus and cart them over to Sew Portland for a brief checkup, during which one of Sew Portland's cadre of savvy sewing-machine technicians will test all the cogs and bolts to make sure the mechanism is up to snuff. Once the checkup has been completed and the gerbil that rotates the wheel powering the machine has been fed and petted, the technician will guide Groupon buyers through a reintroduction to sewing, filling noggins with expert tidbits about how to construct a patchwork wedding dress or how to repair a sail in the middle of a hurricane.
