Knitting and Sewing Classes – Killiney, Co Dublin – Starting Wednesday 26th January 2011

Once you finish the first few projects you will be able to tackle your own alterations, cut and follow patterns and know many hand stitches.

These sewing and knitting classes are geared towards those starting out on their creative path.  If you have a sewing machine that has an array of breath taking cobwebs on it or you knit in school and haven’t touched a pair of needles since, this is a great place to start (again!). These classes are also for those that have the basics, got started and then stuck on a cardigan for the latest addition to the family, help is at hand.  With over 45 years experience, Annette McDermott has made debs dresses, christening gowns and  wedding dresses, worked for curtain companies, knitted jumpers suppliers and taught in schools, private lessons and worked for St John of Gods teaching knitting.
