Sept 11 (Sat, 9-4)
In this workshop, we’ll explore a plethora of techniques to mend and modify knits—both handknits and commercially produced knits. Got holes? We’ll learn how to fix them by darning or creating a knitted patch. Stains? We’ll explore a duplicate stitch to cover them, a technique that’s also useful for reinforcing and embellishing. Shortening and lengthening the sleeves and bodies of sweaters, modify collars, and even add afterthought pockets to knits, will be covered too. Finally, we’ll install zippers in knit fabric—with perfect tension and NO SEWING! Get ready to see the endless possibilities of knitwear—both your beloved handknits and store-bought items.
Skills Level: Advanced beginner. Students should be able to pick up stitches
in our store, including our floor looms.
