Minding Your Knits

3/19/2023 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET

This is class #3 in a 3-part series called “Reinvigorate Your Closet”. Take one or all classes - your choice.  Class #1 is Mend It on February 19, and Class #2 is Make It Fit on March 5.

Knit fabric, from yoga pants to t-shirts and sweaters, requires different repair and mend techniques from other clothes. They seem easier to replace than repair. This class will show you new ways to think about your knit garments, how to remake or repair worn knits and rejuvenate your sweaters. Learn when to hand stitch and when a sewing machine or serger is needed.  Bring in your own knit clothing that needs new life and see what can happen.

Instructor:  Jeanne Flanagan

Jeanne grew up in a creative family that made everything from clothes to go-carts.  Here at Makers Mill, Jeanne wears several hats as the Leader on our Fiber Arts Circle and as an instructor. Jeanne has been a makerspace instructor for many years in MA and has a wealth of knowledge about fiber arts.  

“Makers Mill nourishes that hands-on, inquiring mind and I am so happy to be teaching and learning at the makerspace where we can inspire people to create for themselves.”

Assistant:  Cindy Durkee

Cindy has a love of sewing that began as a child.  She studied at  Pratt Institute in New York City earning a BFA in Fashion Design.  Years of work as a designer in the garment industry enhanced her knowledge of professional construction techniques, patternmaking and  fitting, and sewing shortcuts.  She has designed and produced clothing, theater costumes, large banner installations, commercial retail displays, décor items, as well as 3- D stuffed toys and dolls.  She sees learning to sew as both a handy life-skill and as a technique for creative expression.
