Friday Classes at S&Q Expo – Schaumburg Il


Athleisure Sewing – Friday 12:30 PM-2:00 PM

Love the look, love the feel and ready to make some of your own? This growing wardrobe category started with the yoga pant, and now includes all sorts of clothing appropriate for the gym and beyond. Learn the basics of making these versatile pieces from an experienced fitter who loves to work with knits of all types. Discuss ‘negative ease’ alongside stretch factors and construction techniques, and explore ways to create unique, on-trend styles from a basic pattern, including yoga pants, leggings and shorts, plus a series of tops. Finally, learn to make the garments your own by adding pockets and changing the neckline, armholes and hemline.

Serger 911 – Friday 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

All serger owners and prospective serger owners will love this class! Explore how the serger operates from the inside out as you learn how width is used to improve stitches, how to create a perfect balanced-tension control strip to test your stitches for each new fabric and thread you use, a sequential tension formula that works on any model and with all thread types and five-minute serger pocket that can be added to any pattern. If you have a serger and barely use it, or want to use it with greater proficiency, this class is a fantastic place to start!
