Nothing beats the comfort of knits. And sewing knits can be quick and easy too. The challenge is getting the fit just right so you don't end up with a garment that is too tight or too baggy. Join me for this knit workshop and explore the world of knits.
Learn about patterns, sizing, needles and thread. Start with a basic t-shirt and practice sewing seams with a regular sewing machine and/or a serger. You'll see a variety of easy options for neckline finishes - bands, bindings, facings and elastic trim. Then try any other top or dress pattern to further practice your new skills.

You will learn about fitting and sewing pants and skirts, including options for applying elastic waistbands. You'll have knit know-how and will be ready to create a wardrobe of comfortable, easy sew, easy care garments.

You may bring your own sewing machine or arrange with Marla to borrow one.

Workshops begin each morning at 9AM and finish at 5PM. The classroom is available to you in the evening and will be locked securely overnight.

Lunch is included each day. There are many restaurants within walking distance for dinner on your own.
This workshop will be limited to 6 students to ensure individual attention. A $100 non-refundable deposit will reserve a space for you.
