Description

Over 6 hours, you make your choice of traditional unisex T Shirt or a 3/4 sleeve length blouse. As you make them you will learn about successful sewing with knit fabric.  

Sewing with knit fabrics is fantastic. No need for buttons and zips! If you've given it a go and had skipped stitches, puckered seams and general frustrations - we'll help you understand where you were going wrong.  

  • When to use different machine stretch stitches.
  • How to adjust your machine settings for a great result on knits.
  • Learn to use the overlocker if desired
  • Setup and sew with a twin needle

When choosing your fabric, please choose knit fabric with 2 way stretch.  A nice choice is a blend of predominantly natural fibre with some synthetic, for example 95% Merino and 5% Spandex.

Wow! Knits are more of a challenge then I imagined in my head, I was so grateful to have lots of guidance to work through learning to use this fabric type. I learned lots and was absolutely delighted with my final product! My friends were very impressed. <3 Can't wait to take more classes!

The basic stretch class was great and I produced a beautiful merino top that I wear all the time. It definitely gave me the skills to feel confident seeing with stretch material

This was my second Thread Den course and it was just as fantastic as the first. Danielle is an incredibly warm & patient teacher & the space is wonderful. I feel like I have gained a solid beginners skillset for working with knits and am feeling confident about making another knit garment at home!
