About the Event

Ever wanted to try sewing with knit fabric? Ever wanted a pair of leggings in a color other than black or grey? Join us in discovering the versatility of knits by sewing your own leggings! In this class you'll learn techniques for working with knits and how to pick the right fabric for your project. We will be using a pattern by Jalie, an indie pattern company with a strong record in sportswear. Once you've made one pair, you'll want to make lots and lots more!

This class will cover:

  • How to choose the right fabric for your project
  • Sewing with knits on a standard domestic sewing machine
  • How to choose the right fabric for your project

Skill level: ✂️✂️✂️

You've been sewing for awhile and you have a pretty good handle on the basics. You're looking to delve into more advanced techniques like proper fitting or working with stretchy fabrics.

Supplies: You will need to purchase the pattern and fabric before class. More details in the supply list you'll receive upon registration.
