I used to make cards alone. I wanted a stamping buddy. It was expensive ($5 a class, then progressed to $8/class, then eventually $10/class) - I went to one demo's classes for two or so years... paid for the classes, made the cards... BUT I did not go for the cards or to learn anything. I went specifically to get a stamping buddy. After a while, I got to know one lady really well, and we became friendly enough so that now every week that I can, I go to her house to stamp. Hurray! Now whenever we meet we just work on whatever we want, and stamp away. It was totally worth it!!
edited to add: Just wanted to clarify that ALL the ladies at the classes were very nice and pleasant; it just took work to find someone whose schedule fit mine, whose availability fit mine, etc. Lots of them were just too busy - kids, school, AND a job, etc. Also, I wanted someone not so far away (less than a half-hour drive for example).
