During this workshop we will show you how to take apart your old garment and make a pattern so that you can sew many more for years to come! We’ll then show you how to construct your new tee-shirt and discuss options for fun custom details.
If you’ve never used a serger or if you simply need a refresher, this class will get you going and build your confidence. We’ll introduce you to the how the serger works and when is the best time to use one vs a sewing machine. We will also give you some options for the best results with knits on a regular sewing machine!
Please note that you will need to bring your knit fabric (pre-washed) and the garment that you would like to copy. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your proposed garment in advance so that we can advise about fabric requirements.
We include thread, tracing cloth and the use of all tools required during the workshop.
Maximum of 6 students so you will receive plenty of 1-1 instruction.
Prerequisite: No previous serger machine experience is required for this class but you must have some experience sewing clothing.
Instructor: Jenny Ambrose

We encourage you to bring snacks as it’s much easier to be creative when you have fuel for the brain! We provide herbal teas.
