Know Your Knits Sewing Course


The Know Your Knits Course is designed to provide you with all the information and skills you need to confidently begin sewing projects with knit and stretch fabric.

You will complete four projects throughout the course and will be guided through a variety of techniques and skills which can then be adapted to all your future knit projects.

You will also be provided with comprehensive information on identifying stretch fabric types, cutting techniques, sewing with elastic, stitch types, hemming and much more!

The entire course is taught on your sewing machine so no experience or use of an overlocker is required for this course.
