This is session #2 of 2.

Come STREEEEEEEEEEETCH your sewing know-how at Camp Fashionista. From t-shirts to slinky maxi skirts to your favorite sweats, stretchy knit fabrics are everywhere. Sewing with knits is a whole separate skill set and Camp Fashionista can help you level up. We’ll teach you how to set up your machine, the special tools knits require, and specialized cutting and sewing techniques that make knit projects so fabulous.
