WORKSHOP: Sew Citrine Cardigan

Sew your own cosy cardigan using the Citrine Sewing Pattern. Learn how to sew curved knit seams, cuffs & ribbing, knit buttonholes (optional), and - if time permits - tips for hacking the pattern in this workshop at Rae's studio in downtown Ann Arbor.

Arrive with your pieces pre-cut (cut your pieces at home) or add the optional 2-hour cutting class at the studio the evening before to cut out and prep your pieces with Rae. 

This is a 3* hour in-person workshop taught by Rae Hoekstra
(*5 hours if you add the cutting class)
