Here’s some of the end results……
We also had another 2 shrugs cut out and ready to sew up, a camera shy skirt and another top (not MIY Collection!) well under way.
I had a lovely day with a really nice bunch of students, but here’s what they thought of it…..
“A lovely way to spend a Sunday! Relaxing, no pressure atmosphere, friendly group and a great place to learn. I am so pleased with my dress and can’t believe I finished it in one day, I can’t wait to try another stretchy pattern, it definitely isn’t such a scary prospect now.”
“Such a wonderful day! I have previously been scared of stretchy fabrics, but now I feel I can tackle them with a new found confidence.”
“Brilliant, great to be able to finish a garment in a day!”
“Arriving in Brighton on a cold wet Sunday morning to a warm welcome from Wendy, followed by an informative and confidence boosting practical lesson making a stretch knit fabric shrug. A great day.”
“Thank you for a wonderful day – such a great and simple pattern (the little shrug) and so satisfying to almost finish it in one go! And so helpful to have Wendy’s brain to pick!”
Not a bad day all round then!
The next Sewing with Knits workshop is on Sunday 16th June.
