Sewing w/Knits Ages 9-21

(Recommended for members with some sewing experience)

Sewing with knits.jpg

The key to sewing with knits is to understand that the fabric is not woven, but rather knitted with a series of small loops that has stretch and requires patterns suitable for stretchy fabric. Members are strongly encouraged to have at least one year of sewing experience before exploring this project.

Members will create a one or two piece track or gym suit (pants or shorts) and work with elastic in creating waistbands and cuffs.


To achieve completion with this project and to take part in summer exhibitions, members must have all project requirements (listed on the PIP) and supporting documents  completed and showcased in the Member Binder for their Club's Achievement Day
