Join Wendy for a day to learn how to successfully sew knitted fabrics on your domestic sewing machine. Wendy wrote a whole book on sewing with knits (Beginner’s Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics) and has spent over 10 years teaching people the tips, tricks and machine settings to successfully sew knits on a regular sewing machine.  Once you’ve mastered the basics Wendy will show you how to use small offcuts of knitted fabrics to make a cosy snood or pair of wristwarmers.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of machine sewing ability apart from complete beginners. You will need to bring your own sewing machine (see below) that you are already confident in using.

Materials:    Please bring your sewing machine - it should have basic stitches including zig zag .  You can also bring polyester thread suitable for your machine in a neutral colour but some will also be available on the day. We will provide universal stretch needles but you can also bring these yourself  - please check if your machine requires non -standard needles. Feel free to bring along any knit fabric offcuts you already have, there will also be a small selection available to use on the day.
