Couture Finishing for Crochet and Knitting with the Shibaguyz


Master sewists and finishers work for years to perfect their finishing skills and they are sought out by couture designers for those skills to give their work the flawless finishes it deserves. Likewise, you’ve worked hard on making your stitching skills the best they can be so you can produce FAB fabrics for your handmade projects, now it’s time to bring those finishing skills up to the next level. There is no arguing the point that FAB finishing is the key to producing handmade projects that have that extra little something that makes them stand out from the crowd. In our Couture Finishing class, we will share with you the professional finishing skills we use every day in our design studio to create the Shibaguyz Designz line of garments, accessories, and home décor.

We will break down each step of the finishing process from blocking to weaving in ends to flawless seaming and will take the drudgery out of finishing to help make the finishing process just as much fun as the stitching. Imagine your satisfaction when you stand back and look at the flawless finishing techniques that make your project look like it was made by the hands of a pro!

Prerequisite: Must know how to read a written pattern and should have a basic understanding of how a garment is put together (i.e. A garment is made up of separate parts that are put together to make one finished wearable). Previous garment construction experience not necessary!
