Does sewing with jersey or knit fabrics, aka stretch fabrics challenge you? Our Sewing with Stretch Workshop is aimed at dispelling all the myths and horror stories surrounding sewing with stretchy fabrics. Once you know how to work with this fabric you will love whipping up a quick and easy sweatshirt or t-shirt. 

Your tutor for stretch workshop will be Naomi. During this workshop you will learn the techniques you need to master sewing with different types of stretch fabrics, including different stitches and needle types, and will have the option to make your own Billie Sweatshirt, Linden sweatshirt or Agnes top. 

You will be spending the day sewing with others in our studio space surrounded by beautiful fabrics, while learning and developing your skills. This includes measuring, making adjustments if needed, cutting out and then sewing.
