Sewing Knits: Classic Tee // 2 Days // Jun 12 & 19
Learn to sew with knits! Stretchy fabrics make up a large portion of our daily wardrobe from loungewear to activewear, so why not learn to sew with them? We lead you through the basics so you understand the characteristics of knit fabrics and how to tame them.
Workshop project: Participants will create a women's or men's short or long-sleeved tee with a crew or scoop neck. The women's shirt pattern is the Union St Tee by Hey June Handmade, and the men's is the Olive & S Metro Tee.
