Make Friends With Stretch
Are you scared of working with stretch material? Come and make friends with it, it’s not all the bad!
To attend this workshop you should be able to use a sewing machine independently (i.e. thread a machine and sew a straight line). If you are a complete beginner you should attend Make Friends With The Sewing Machine before this workshop.
This workshop is a great introduction to working with stretch materials. You will complete a number of samples practising different stitches and construction methods using the sewing machine. This will give you the grounding to begin your first project.
You will learn how to:
- Handle stretch material
- select the correct stretch stitches for each project
- Stabilize fabric
- Sew a sample neckband
- Sew different seams
- Use elastic-such as ruching
- Sew hems
- We will also introduce you to an over-locker and let you have a practice!
