Hate seaming and finishing? Well, come and learn how to have fun doing both. We will explore mattress seams on stockinette, seaming on reverse stockinette, seaming ribbing, both 1x1 and 2x2, seaming horizontal to vertical seams (shoulder to sleeves), seaming bind-off edges to cast-on edges, and three-needle bind-offs. We will even learn an easy way to remember how to Kitchener stitch. So, pack your tapestry needle and some extra yarn and let’s have some fun!
