Upcoming event: A CustomFit Party! November 6, 2015 – Posted in: Events, Project Ideas


Join us on Friday, November 27th from 6 pm to 9 pm for a CustomFit Party!

Are you reluctant to knit sweaters because you’re just not convinced your finished garment is going to fit you properly? CustomFit is a custom sweater pattern generator from well known knitwear designer Amy Herzog that takes your choices, your body, and your specific hand-knit gauge and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you, so you get to make all the fun choices (?I want a long-sleeved scoop neck!?), without worrying about the hard ones (?How much ease do I need in my waist??).  With CustomFit we can build you a pattern that fits beautifully ? from hem to neck, and everywhere in between.

At this event we will take your measurements, put them into the system, and assist with all the steps needed to get you started. We will look at different yarn choices and help you to choose one that will give you exactly the garment you?re looking for. We will also start working on swatches and help with any questions you may have about selecting the pattern options that will work best for you.

It?s always nice to see what other people are working on and we hope that this event will inspire both new and seasoned sweater knitters to create their perfect garment!

There is a non-refundable $40.00 fee for the event which includes the taking of your measurements (in 15-minute private sessions), help with yarn choices, and the generation of a personalized pattern. The fee also entitles you to an individual follow-up appointment to have your swatch measured and your pattern finalized. Participants will also benefit from a 10% discount on yarn purchased for their sweater at the event!

Please note that this event is limited to 12 participants. Call 514 486-5648 to register.

We look forward to supporting you on your CustomFit sweater journey 🙂
