Couture Finishing for Knit and Crochet with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
What it’s all about!
There is no arguing the point that FAB finishing is the key to producing handmade projects that have that extra little something that makes them stand out from the crowd. In our Couture Finishing class, we will share with you the professional finishing skills we use every day in our design studio to create the Shibaguyz Designz line of garments, accessories, and home decor.
We will break down each step of the finishing process from blocking to weaving in ends to flawless seaming and teach you how to rise above the drudgery of finishing to make the process just as much fun as the stitching. With simple steps, your project look like it was made by the hands of a pro!
It’s time to take your finishing skills from good to great... even FAB!
Understanding and application of professional finishing techniques:
End Cap Finishing Stitch
Weaving in ends
Locking Mattress Stitch for sewing invisible seams
Setting in sleeves
etting in the perfect zipper
We will throw in our favorite tips and tricks as we go along.
