Sewing with knits can be tricky! We will show you the tips and tricks of sewing with knit material and making professional-looking, beautiful knit garments. Knits are commonly sewn with sergers but we will use our PFAFF Ambition 610 Sewing Machine -- you can sew with knits on a home machine! This workshop is best for people who have sewn at least one garment before. 

This workshop is 6 hours total split over 2 evenings in February. For March we have made the class three 3-hour sessions for more instruction time and to give students more time to complete their project. During this time you will receive expert instruction on best practices for sewing with knits on your home sewing machine, you will practice your stitches on some knit materials, and finally you will sew yourself a stretch jersey T-shirt using your new skills. 

The Pattern

Closet Core - Core Tee (Size 0 - 32)

Included in this workshop are the digital files and large format print-out for the pattern above. Patterns can be picked up 1 week prior to the workshop date. 

If you prefer to work on your own knit fabric project feel free to bring it in with you. Please notify us if you are choosing this option.
