Understanding Fabrics Workshop
Selecting fabric can be one of the most fun and inspiring things to when it comes to starting a new project. But if you're buying online, or even in person, it can also be one of the most challenging things too.
With all the different types of fabric on the market - how do you begin to know what's what, and how can you avoid disappointing online purchases if you can't feel the drape and texture actually in person?
If you're don't live in a big city - fabric shopping can be a total minefield. You know you want to make something, you have a vision in your head, you start to explore online, and then you go down a rabbit hold and end up making some very expensive mistakes ...
It simply doesn't have to be this way. I always say that sewing is engineering, and a good engineer needs to know their materials!
All fabrics have different qualities which affect the way the material behaves under the machine. Patters have been designed to work with specific fabrics in mind, so that the ideal garment is produced...
But how do you know when you can make substitute decisions?
How do you know what you can use from your stash if you can't remember what it is?
This one day workshop will cover in some detail everything you need to know about fabric, and give you a handy guide for reference at the end. Despite it's online nature it will be fully interactive, and the participant fee includes a sample pack of fabrics for you to handle to really bring the course content to life.
It is absolute ESSENTIAL knowledge that is going to change your life and open up a world of possibilities... you don't want to miss it!
Suitable for: EVERYONE who sews - this knowledge is vital for a happy sewing life!

- A pen and a printer for the worksheets
