This fascinating class is for anyone who has some dressmaking experience and would like to widen their repertoire to mastering stretch! Learn about stretch fabrics, how to cut and handle them and learn how machines react to stretches. On the day, you will learn about techniques for working with jersey and other stretch fabrics and then in the afternoon you will make a simple top with your purchased fabric. With experienced tutor Gill McBride.

Dates and times

This class runs on Saturday 25th April from 10:30am until 4:30pm.

Please ask for a handout in the shop when you book, with details of what you’ll need to bring (we don’t stock jersey fabric).
