Are you a fan of sweater knit fabrics, but have yet to take that big step and sew your first sweater? Do you fear cutting into this stretchy fabric that sometimes frays and runs? Then this announcement is for you.

I'll be teaching How to Sew Sweater Knits at Workroom Social in Brooklyn on Saturday, March 12, 2016. It's an all day workshop, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM, lunch and treats included!

There are still a few cotton fisherman knit cable panels in the shop. I used 2 sets to cut and sew this long sleeve sweater.
