Class Description:

Garment sewing has become very popular over the last few years.  Using knit fabrics will result in garments that are ready to wear and casual enough for everyday.  This class will show you how to sew with knits without the need for a serger.  Sewing with knit fabrics is different than sewing with cottons or other non-stretch woven fabrics.  Come to this class to gain confidence and make a great shirt for your wardrobe.

Purchase knit fabric prior to class. Wash fabric in warm water, spin in washer. Either hang to dry or on low setting in dryer. Choose size on pattern and cut out pattern pieces. Lay out according to pattern instructions and cut pattern out, paying attention to the grain lines on the pattern.

Be sure to mark the notches and circles on the pattern pieces onto the fabric pieces. Bring all pieces to class!

If cutting out the pattern is challenging please contact the store prior to class for some guidance.
