Sewing Techniques for Combining Yarn Crafts with Fabric with Susan Lazear
Why not add mixed-media techniques to your creative repertoire? Learn to combine knit or crochet with commercial fabrics. Using sewing machines, sergers, and hand-techniques, students will make samples that can be used along with your knit and crochet swatches in a garment or accessory.

We will sample joining techniques, cut-and-sew our knits, add edgings, finishings, etc. and discuss knitting and crochet techniques for finishing your designs beautifully. Mixed Media is simple when you have the right techniques!

Note: Basic sewing skills and comfort with a sewing machine required.

Machines will be provided for use in class.
