make*do*mend: Sewing with Knits - Favorite Tees Forever - Saturday, July 27th, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

$ 110.00

You choose how this class goes - pattern drafting or sewing with knits! Have a tee shirt that you have loved and can't seem to find it again or are ready to conquer knits? Then this, our friends, is the class for you. Join us for a special evening of "bring it, make it, and hopefully, take it!"

You'll work with us to get you going on recreating your favorite tee, with a focus on drafting a pattern and demos on sewing with knits in this four-hour class. If you want more hands-on time with the machine, we highly recommend the Hemlock Tee from Grainline Studio (a free pattern) to use so that you can get to sewing faster. Also great is the Lark Tee from Grainline (available at the shop).

Experience: Advanced Beginner/Intermediate Apparel (sound knowledge of machine sewing, comfortable with basic sewing knowledge - you've sewn apparel projects and they are all still holding together)
