|I took this class at the Sew/Quilt/Embroidery Festival in Omaha, Nebraska. The expo is one of several around the country put on by pcm. I think a lot of the classes are the same in several locations.
This class was a lecture demonstration. Emma Seabrooke is an acknowledged knit expert, and she gave us a lot of very usable information very quickly. There were a couple of handouts and quite a few samples that we passed around, and she had lots of sample garments to show. She told us what techniques worked, and what didn't. Quite a few of her solutions to common problems involve specialized fusible tapes. Her results are what we would all wish for.
Printed Class Description:
"This class covers how to sew with slinky, cotton knit, poly sweater knit, and many other types of knits that you might find in your local fabric shop, on the Internet or in the large department stores or specialty stores like Chico's. Emma will cover threads to use, notions to use, how to create different necklines, bindings, and different hems. How to construct a cardigan especially around the neckline, the buttonholes, use of grosgrain or fusible interfacing for the front opening, cuffing or binding the sleeves, chevroning, and other decorative techniques."
I think she covered everything that was in the description, as well as how to prewash various knits.
I felt it was well worth taking. The only thing I would add is that we were in a fairly small room, and she was not miked. She is rather soft-spoken, so you may want to go early and sit close if you need to.
