With Catherine Carter

Learn the basics of sewing knit and stretch fabrics – there’s no need to be afraid! In this course you will learn how to read a basic pattern and make small alterations, cut your fabric and sew a stretch garment. Learn how to sew a stretch garment using the overlocker, or have a go at using the overlocker for the first time. You can also make your garment on the sewing machine and have a go at using the overlocker for finishing. We will be using a twin needle to finish all the hems for a professional finish. Complete the course feeling confident after you have sewn yourself a basic tshirt, tshirt dress or pair of leggings in class!

Patterns are provided for all designs, just bring along some great, comfortable, stretch fabric to make your garment.

“I’m happy to say that after the stretch fabrics workshop, I’ve already made another t-shirt and that after everything I learned and the pattern alternations the teacher helped me with, it came together really easily. It’s opened up a whole new area of sewing projects for me.” – Corinne attended our Learn to Sew Stretch Fabrics Workshop

Please note, you need to have recent sewing experience to attend this workshop. You should be of at least beginner skill level, and able to set up and operate a sewing machine independently. If you would like to learn how to sew to attend this workshop or you need a refresher you can attend our Introduction to Sewing Course.
