Sewing Knits is easier than you think, especially when you are sewing something you are excited about like this Mock Wrap Sweater.
When we added this Mock Wrap Sweater to the Knits Class last year, I made myself about 4 of them. I have to make plans at least 4 more before this season is over. I did some cozy sweater versions for the fall/winter and then I did some sleeveless versions for the summer.
The version for class will include sleeves and you’ll see just how easy it is to put sleeves in your garments.
Some experience is helpful for this class, but beginners are welcome! It helps to have take the Intro to the Sewing Machine Class. (But is not required)

I know it’s hard to believe right now, but summer IS just around the corner. There is no time like the present to figure out what you (if you are a 9-15 year old) or your child of that age, is going to be doing all summer!
M Avery Designs is going to be holding the Fashion Lab Summer Camp again this summer. FL Summer Camp was established in 2008 and in it’s meager beginnings taught 25+ kids to sew in two five-week sessions. And we had a blast doing it. Just take a look at the photo gallery.
This summer Fashion Lab Summer Camp is going to be even bigger and better! We have two five-week sessions and room for 48 kids, but no class is going to have more than 6 students per two-hour group!
Session 1 begins on June 22nd and runs for five weeks and session 2 starts on July 27th and also runs for five weeks.
There are four groups to choose from during each session. Sign up for the Monday & Wednesday group from 11am – 1pm, the Monday & Wednesday group from 2pm – 4pm, the Tuesday & Thursday group from 11am – 1pm or the Tuesday & Thursday group from 2-4pm.
As mentioned above, all 9-15 year old’s are welcome and we are going to do our best to group kids together based on age. But since the group sizes are so small, each and every kid will be able to work at the skill level they are most comfortable with and be challenged so they can get the most out of the camp.
Each camper has the opportunity to participate in the End of Session Runway Show that brings together all the groups at the end of session. At the Runway Show, each camper will show off all the projects they made throughout the camp. They will “Walk the Runway” in front of all their family and friends.
Megan Avery, the Owner & Creator of M Avery Designs, will be teaching each and every session of the Fashion Lab Summer Camp this summer.
For more information about Fashion Lab Summer Camp please check out the M Avery Designs Website or feel free to give us a call at 201.876.1198. We can answer all your questions.
Some highlight include a “Make your Own Knit Scarf Workshop” as well as a “Make your Own Wrapped Earrings Workshop”. Both are taught by guest teachers!
