In this workshop we'll focus on tips and techniques for sewing up your knitting and picking up stitches. This workshop is for everyone- beginners as well as experienced knitters.

You will learn the best ways to sew your knitting seams, joining smoothly, evenly and quickly and you will be shown how to complete your knitted garments with perfectly picked up neck edges and button bands that look professional.

You will have lots of opportunity to ask questions in this 2.5 hour workshop. 

You will need to bring the following to the workshop:

  • Two stocking stitch squares worked with a DK weight yarn that measure 10 cm square. This is usually about 22 - 24 stitches and 28 - 30 rows
  • A pair of 4.0 mm needles 

This workshop is led by Jackie Millichap

Very informative class

Thanks to Jackie for an excellent class today. I've been knitting for years but Jackie gave lots of hints and tips about achieving a more professional finish, especially for picking up extra stitches for bands and collars

Brilliant for beginners or advanced knitters

Being a new knitter I thought this might be partly too advanced for me but it is a brilliant workshop taken at a pace where everyone (even me) understood the techniques. This is invaluable information and Jackie is very patient! Highly recommended even for a seasoned knitter who can learn new techniques.

Professional Finishing

I had always struggled with neatly picking up stitches and sewing up finished projects. This workshop demystified all of this for me, I still need practice but the instructions leaflet we took away with us is so clear I can refer to it anytime. My latest project has the finish I'd always wanted, but didn't know how to achieve before, I even blocked for the first time!

Finishing techniques workshop

This was great! Although I need to learn patience and do those tension tests, and have a go at blocking!
Thank you for inspiring me.😊
