About the Class: This class is a primer on what a designer needs to know when sourcing fabrics.Before you go walking a tradeshow floor or make a call to a supplier – know what to ask! You are much more likely to engage the supplier in your search if you can speak their language. Have you wanted to have a better understanding of the differences in selecting a woven fabric versus a knit fabric for your designs? Or if there’s a big deal over selecting a polyester fabric over cotton fiber content? Then this seminar is for you! Sara will cover the basic differences in fibers and the benefits of one type over another. Is natural always better than manmade? you will get a cram course in yarns, fabric constructions, different finishes and how sustainable practices are becoming the norm in fabric formation. After this seminar you will be armed with the knowledge to make a more informed selection when you’re sourcing fabrics/trims for your end-use. You can now approach suppliers with confidence asking the right questions using industry language!
