We'llstart by discussing woven fabrics vs. knit fabrics and how each of these are constructed. Next, we'll demystify the major fiber types through a step-by-step introduction to cotton, wool, silk, linen and their man-made counterparts. During the class you'll put together a useful swatch kit to reference in the future whenever a little refresher is desired.
