We started a series of programs we call “Sew-Alongs.” What is a Sew-Along? It is kind of like a sewing bee where a group of sewing enthusiasts get together and work on the same kind of project.
The Fiber Arts Studio 'Sewing Programming Committee' selected some popular clothing patterns. People who want to participate will purchase their own pattern, fabric, and notions required to make the garment. Then, we will meet and work together to make the chosen garment.
This January Sew-Along will offer two options from “The Toaster Sweater” pattern from SEW HOUSE SEVEN patterns. You can purchase the pattern at Esther's Fabrics in downtown Winslow on Bainbridge Island. It is also available at www.sewhouse7.com
Version 1 is a high neck raglan sleeve cropped sweater with a wide waistband and wide cuffs. Version 2 is a semi-high neck sweater with a faced mini funnel neck, fitted through the shoulders and sleeves and fuller through the body. It is a bit longer in the back.
