Holy pins and needles, Batman! Become your own sewing superhero and overcome the fear of working with that troublesome stretchy fabric. We'll give you tips and tricks for working with knitted fabrics (such as jersey, cotton knit or ponte roma).

You’ll construct a top, in your own choice of fabric (see 'Additional Information') with the sleeve and body cut as one, so no tricky set in sleeves to worry about. You’ll finish the top by adding cuff and hem panels.

You’ll conquer the complicated-looking but super useful overlocker. This is a brilliant workshop to progress on to if you have already attended our Overlocking for Beginners workshop, and you’re raring to test out your newfound skills.

Quick Robin! To the Batwing-mobile!
