At Fabrications, we know that sewing, knitting, and crafting are more fun when we do them together! Sometimes you need a little guidance through the tricky parts, or simply the motivation to complete a project. Since 2020, we have been hosting sew-alongs, knit-alongs, and quilt-alongs as a fun way to learn new techniques, share ideas, and connect with each other!

Here are a few answers to your FAQs!

  • All of our make-alongs are hosted on our YouTube Channel. Make sure to subscribe and hit the notifications bell to stay in the loop!
  • There is no need to sign up. Our videos are shared publicly and free to watch.
  • Participation is optional! We know everyone works at their own pace, and some people might not be ready to start when we are.
  • Most make-alongs run for about 3-5 weeks depending on the complexity of the project.
  • Videos are filmed LIVE and published within 24 hours for you to catch up or rewind.
  • Typically videos are filmed on a weeknight (EST). Specific dates and times will be shared when make-alongs are announced.
  • If you watch our videos live, you can have specific questions answered in real time. Comments are monitored daily if you think of anything you want to ask at a later time.
  • Kits are often available (online and in the shop), depending on the project. If you prefer to choose your own supplies, our staff can help you find what you will need!

If you want to receive updates on upcoming SALs, QALs, and KALs, you can subscribe to our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook or Instagram. Join our Fabrications Sewcial Group on Facebook, where you can share your photos and find encouragement from our friendly community!

Fabrications Sock-Along

Spring has sprung, and our thoughts immediately turn to…sock knitting! That’s right, one of our top 5 warm-weather knitting projects is a pair of socks. Whether you’re knitting on the porch, at the park, or by the pool, socks are perfectly portable!
Dive into the wild and wonderful world of woolly footwear with Caitlin and Emily starting April 23. This Knit-Along will build off of our two free sock patterns: Quilt Block Socks and Irish Chain Quilt Socks. We’ll be primarily focusing on the many different types of sock construction for this class, so if you need some practice with stranded colour work knitting, we encourage you to go back to our Fair Enough Cowl KAL. You can also choose to knit these socks plain - we love vanilla socks too!
In addition to sharing our own personal knitting tips, tricks, and quirks, we’ll learn all about:
  • double pointed needles vs magic loop vs small circulars
  • what makes a good sock yarn
  • the sock percentage system
  • knitting two socks at a time
  • knitting top down vs toe up
  • different sock heels: heel flap + gusset, short rows, etc…
  • different sock toes: rounded, anatomical, etc…
