1 Day workshop -Learn to sew Jersey fabrics
Sunday 17 May 2020
Are you confident on the sewing machine and made a few garments out of woven (non-stretchy) fabric, but too scared to tackle a knit fabric?
During the workshop you will learn a range of techniques and ways of handling and sewing jersey knits both with an overlocker and an ordinary sewing machine. You will produce samples and make notes, which you can refer back to when sewing with jersey at home.
You will also learn about differing types of jersey fabric, needles and stitches to use, as well as twin needles and try different ways of finishing jersey hems, necklines and sleeves to achieve a professional finish. Find out how to test the stretch and how to set up your machine for stitching with knitted fabrics.
All fabric, tools and equipment will be provided, however if you prefer you are welcome to bring your own sewing machine and/or overlocker.
You will need to have done some dressmaking before, but not necessarily used an overlocker.
Help yourself to tea, coffee, biscuits and delicious cake, throughout the session.... to keep those creative juices flowing.
