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 hand and/or machine techniques, you will make samples that can be used along with your knit and crochet swatches in a garment or accessory.

We will sample joining techniques by hand or machine (your choice), 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 required. 

Machines will be provided for use in the class. But you may use hand-sewing techniques for the complete process.
