Looking for Knits?

Recently, Christine of CJPatterns was our guest speaker at Creative Clothing Club.  She has a line of patterns, primarily designed for knits.  She brought a trunk show of her clothing and her patterns to sell.  She's a delightful gal, very gracious, and down to earth.  Not to mention, she knows her way around a knit garment.

In the June/July Threads magazine, Christine's travel wardrobe is featured.  There are several pages devoted to her garments, and a nice article that she wrote.  She brought all the garments featured in the magazine.  It was interesting to see them up close.  She sent the clothes to Threads to be photographed, and when they were returned, some had seams taken apart in order for them to fit the model. 

Christine brought large samples of the fabrics she sells online.  Most of her fabric contains Lycra and are good quality.  If you're looking for another source for knits, take a look at her website. 

Happy Monday!

Wonderful club meeting. I've never used her patterns or used her knits. I have to give them a try.

I use a serger as much as I can and was wondering if anyone knows of some patterns that work well using an serger?
