Tuesday, October 24, 11am-1pm • $30
Teacher: Sara Keim
Learn how the right seaming approach can give your garment a professional, finished look! In this class, Sara will teach you a variety of seaming techniques and discuss which ones work best for different parts of a finished garment. You’ll delve into mattress stitch, duplicate stitch, kitchener stitch, and kitchener variants, and Sara will include stitch diagrams you can take home for later reference. Boost your confidence, and make your finished product as pretty as its pieces!
