In this two day workshop you will create a Driftless Cardigan and learn a series of techniques for Hems and Closures. Cardigans are an essential piece for any wardrobe and this pattern can be made to fit your style. Additionally, you will get to know other garment sewists and have time to socialize during our dinner reception. You are sure to go home enthusiastic to take on your next big project.

  • Blind Hem

Driftless Cardigan: Prerequisites: This class is considered a beginner-level class; however, you will get the most out of the training if you have a basic idea of how the machine functions. You do not need to be a BERNINA owner to take this course.

Before the class you must prepare your fabrics for the Driftless Cardigan. A list of recommended fabrics will be sent to you along with the PDF of the pattern. Wash and dry your fabric before cutting your pattern size.
