Stretch Sewing Classes

Thanks to a trend toward casual, easy day-to-night dressing, T-shirts, pants and other stretch garments are no longer restricted for lounging around the house, and this is why Stretch sewing has become so popular.

More and more all of us are dressing head to toe in layers of knits because it is easy to dress for being cold or hot..

Stretch sewing  can be every bit as creatively satisfying as working with woven fabrics and it is not hard to learn.

For some reason stretch fabrics still have the stigma of being scary, but in fact working with stretch fabrics is a natural progression for a beginner sewer.  Stretch Sewing  patterns are easy because most of them have no difficult buttons, zippers, or darts, and very little use of facings.

Best of all, because the garments are stretch they will be comfortable and wear them forever.

This introduction to stretch sewing will be a launching pad for your own creativity and you will wonder why you never learnt before.
