Perfect Edgings: Zippers with Anne Berk
Learn a four-step process which will give you a perfectly flat and secure zipped border every time! Knitted and crocheted fabric is flexible and sometimes fragile, and zippers are not. A properly inserted zipper will function beautifully without distorting your fabric. You decide whether it will be a design element or remain invisible.
Projects that are ready for zippers are welcome. If you have added an edging, bring extra yarn, and hook or knitting needles 2-3 sizes smaller than used in the project, and a zipper of appropriate color and length. Sewing needle, thread which matches the swatch yarn (for sewing zipper), sewing thread in a contrasting color (for basting), sewing pins.
Knitting Basics include sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles and crochet hooks of various sizes.

Assemble supplies. If no project is ready, knit or crochet and bring to class: 2 swatches at least 3" wide the same length as the zipper brought to class.
