Sew a knit T-shirt, suitable for all levels of experience. This is an open studio 5-week session in which we focus on working with knits.  If you are a beginner or have never sewn with knits then the recommended pattern is:

You will need to purchase your pattern and have it printed. I use Premier Printing for this process. You will also need to purchase your supplies. I recommend that you prewash your fabrics.  We have sewing machines and sergers available.

Style Maker Fabrics has a nice cotton jersey knit in many colors.  You will need 1.5 yards of fabric and matching thread.

If you are familiar with sewing knits then use any pattern of your choice. 

A working knowledge of a sewing machine is required.

Making a knit garment is not required for this session; this is an open studio session, so feel free to work on a project of your choice.

Contact Lee Smith for any questions and additional information at 641-990-7027 or thatsewingplace@gmailcom.
