More Knits
Instructor: Sarah Veblen
Sarah Veblen

The selection of knit fabrics that is available to sewers just keeps on growing! And for those of us who enjoy working with knits, this is great news. But how do you keep up with this expanding variety of knit fabrics? Join me now in exploring more than 25 knits that were not covered in Understanding Knit Fabrics.

Some of the fabrics covered in this 9-lesson class are variations of "tried and true" knits. Some are interesting fibers such as silk, bamboo, and Tencel. Others are examples of the advancement in high-tech knits and eco-friendly knits. Plus, there are several sweater knits. Every swatch description includes basic information as well as garment and needle suggestions.

It is strongly recommended that you have taken Understanding Knit Fabrics prior to this class. Basic, introductory information on knits, such as how to assess knit fabrics and how to size knit fabrics, is not included in More Knits. The kit is an integral part of the class and is required. The class kit contains:

  • Samples (4" x 4") of more than 25 knit fabrics
  • Half-scale tank top pattern
  • Small cut of knit fabric for half-scale garment
  • Fold-over elastic trim to finish neckline of half-scale garment

Class is a combination of PDF downloads, boards and Interactive real time chat sessions with the instructors. Now comes with Videos! See sample below

  1. Assessing structure and drape in knit fabrics.
  2. Determining a fabric’s length of grain.
  3. Sewing on knits with spaces or holes.
