Know Your Fabrics
Are you confused by the different names of all the fabrics available now? Would you like to know the difference between French Terry and Ponte Roma? Or Silk Charmeuse and Duchess Satin? Then come and join us for a little bit of fabric-ology!
You will be getting up close and personal with a whole variety of fabrics and taking a hands-on fun and slightly science-y type approach to testing, detecting and demystifying the different types of fibres and fabrics out there.
When you know what the fabric is you can then decide on which seams and finishes to use. You'll learn how to handle the different fabrics when sewing too, creating a set of samples and notes to take home with you.
All of this will help to give you a better understanding of what you are buying and what sort of patterns will work best with your chosen fabrics so hopefully no more unsatisfactory fabric purchases!
All fabric samples, and equipment (goggles and lab coats optional!) will be provided including tea, coffee and cake.
