Sewing with Stretch: Jarrah Jumper with Charlotte Newland



Learn all the tips and tricks to sew with knits/stretch fabrics whilst making yourself your new favourite jumper. In this class we'll cover key skills for sewing with knits on a home sewing machine and an overlocker, from fitting to finishing, so you can leave with a finished jumper and the confidence to make a zillion more at home!

We'll use the versatile and cosy Megan Nielsen Jarrah jumper pattern in class and you can choose between two necklines (crew and funnel), two sleeve options (cuffed and split sleeve hem) and three hem options (band, curved, cropped). You'll be able to mix and match these options to create a jumper or tee just the way you want it!
