Learn to Sew Knits: The Romy Sweater

Class Description

Who doesn’t love knits! Are you nervous about sewing with them? This class will help you master the fundamental techniques to working with knits. Our teacher Ingrid will guide you in the different ways to stitch the seams, binding, and finishing with either a basic sewing machine (must have zig-zag stitch) or a serger. In this two x 3-hour class students will construct a basic beginner friendly loose-fitting raglan sweater from cutting to fitting to finish.
