Custom Fit and Knit Workshop, Nov 9 - 11, 2007

Custom Fit and Knit Workshop Gauge alone does not determine a good fit in the world of custom knits. Learn how to take proper body measurement, to achieve a custom fit (traditional and Easy wear), then translate those measurements and design ideas into a knit fabric that is compatible with your figure type and the style of the knit garment. This Custom Fit and Knit Workshop sponsored by Knit and Sew, Spring City, PA, will also cover the many variables of knit fabrication, shaping techniques, and professional finishing techniques as they apply to machine knitting. The hands on segments include, knitting ½ of a cardigan knit jacket (for fitting purposes- can be completed in or out of class after fit is observed), knit samples of trims, buttonholes, darts, etc. knit samples of necklines (life-size for fit), and knit swatches for various types of finishing techniques (these can be knit in advance and brought to class). Ms. Kenney, an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, will be the instructor. She has been teaching upper division and seminar classes in knit design, hand and machine knitting and crochet since 1988. She is a long time machine knitter specializing in the Japanese knitting machines. The workshop dates are November 9, 10, and 11, 2007. The workshop is $150 plus material fees. The class limit is 18 attendees. For information on attending the workshop please contact, Donna Streets, email: or call Tammy Noble of Knit and Sew at 610-792-1202.
