Excellent class

This class debunked the myth that sewing knits is difficult. Meg gives a wealth of knowledge about knit fabrics and various methods of sewing knits that any home sewing machine can tackle. The patterns are useful staples in most wardrobes and they allow for customizing to suit a variety of body types. Meg explains how to use Swedish tracing paper, Stretch needles, double needles, a walking foot, clear elastic, tricot hemming tape, and various stitch types. She also explains how to sew knit ...

Great Class!

I have really enjoyed this class and have learned a lot. This class is a big bang for your buck with so many patterns and instruction for each of them. Meg is a very detailed and thorough instructor and a sweetheart. I would highly recommend it.

Awesome for newbies

What a great class!! Meg was awesome!! I really appreciated her teaching style! I am brand new at sewing knits and I felt like she was very thorough, which was exactly what I needed.

And then I become confused and overwhelmed.
