Sew the perfect basic tee! Using the Sewaholic Renfrew T-Shirt, students in our newest sewing class at Spool of Thread will make a fitted knit top with either short or long sleeves.

During this class you will learn the skills necessary to sew knits like a pro! Using our Elna 520 sewing machines, you’ll gain new skills that are transferable to many other knit projects and are highly coveted in the sewing world. Learning how to work with the grain of a knit fabric and choosing the appropriate machine needle and foot for sewing knits on a standard sewing machine will all be highlighted during this class.

Our first session is coming up on Monday, April 24th from 12:30pm – 5:30pm! Call us at 604-879-3031 to register for the class.
