In this fun 2 1/2 day workshop I'm pairing up with Jaime David (Bernina master and garment sewing expert) to bring you the joy of creating your own hand dyed and sewn Grainline Linden sweatshirt. No prior experience dyeing or sewing is required (though some sewing knowledge will be really helpful). We will be teaching you how to dye knits, follow a pattern, and use a serger to construct a simple garment.

On Friday (over drinks and snacks) we will discuss sewing with knits, how to determine your size, and show examples of dyed Lindens so you can make a plan for your own.

On Saturday I will cover basic dyeing techniques for knits and garments and we will cut out our pattern pieces. On Sunday, Jaime will discuss how to use a serger and how to sew knits on a home sewing machine and then guide you through sewing your own Linden. Sergers will be provided.

The workshop fee includes all supplies - heavy knit fabric, dye, the Linden Sweatshirt pattern, and thread. If you already have the Linden pattern, use coupon code "linden" to get $16 off your workshop price and then bring your pattern with you.

If you're not familiar with Grainline Patterns, check them out here: http://shop.grainlinestudio.com/. They are some of my favorite patterns because they are really well written, easy to follow, and the clothes look great.
