In our intro to knits class, students will make our Essential Knit Tee. If you're a bit intimidated to sew knit fabrics but want to, this class is a great way to dive into knits. In this class, you'll learn to work with knits, sew them on a regular sewing machine with a ball point needle, sew straight seams.
Note: To save time and space for your fellow sewists, please cut out your pattern and fabric pieces before class. We will mail your pattern approximately two weeks before class to give you time to cut out. If you want to collect your pattern in person, just let us know in the notes at check out. We encourage you to contact the shop before class if you need help cutting out your fabric.
