It's a great feeling to finish a sweater you've been working on for ages. But then the bit that most knitters dislike the most - the sewing up and finishing! I'm not sure why so many knitters hate this bit. If you know how to shape your sweaters to make sewing up easier and neater, how to do mattress stitch and how to block your garments, then sewing up is quite enjoyable. You'll also learn how to pick up stitches for necklines and button bands, how to work a one row button hole and how to set in a sleeve cap. By the end of the class, you'll have the skills you need to finish your sweaters off in no time. I'm teaching Professional Finishing Techniques at Social Fabric in Devon on 3 September and at Coastal Yarns on 1 November.
If you live in North Cornwall or North Devon or will be in the area on holiday then I highly recommend you pop in to the shop or attend my classes.
You can see my full workshop programme here. If you are a yarn shop owner or show organiser and would like me to teach at your shop/event, then contact me for details. If you'd like your local yarn shop to invite me to teach, then tell them about me and ask them to contact me.
