Be one of the first to make Megan Nielsen's newest knit pattern, the Jarrah! 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, use a serger and attach binding.
Note: To save time and space for your fellow sewists, cut your pattern out of your fabric before class. We encourage you to contact the shop before class if you need help cutting out your fabric.
