- Sewing Machine – have bobbin loaded with your favorite piecing thread
- Ironing Pad or a thick towel
NOTE: Ironing stations can be shared by up to 4 persons
*bring LOTS of scraps…we can play with choices…there are so many variables that giving specifics for fabric requirements cannot be done. Scraps on average should be at least a 10”square in size. Toss in a fat quarter or two if you want to have some consistency in fabrics between all the designs.
- Silk Thread (I use YLI #224 for appliqué of every color 90% of the time) AND/OR 50wt or 60wt cotton thread (I use Prescenia)
- An odd spool of thread for basting-a bright contrasting color is best.
- 1.5” (3” finished) Hexagon papers – at least 25 papers *
- John James Sharps #4/#8 Easy Thread
- Fine Applique Needle or Milliners Needle – Bring a fine hand needle you are comfortable with
- Thimble (highly recommend!)
- Clover Table Top Needle Threader (if you have it bring it ,if not I will have some to test try but I warn you will want one when we are done!)
- Seam ripper – nice and sharp!
- Pins – fine appliqué pins work best, at least 1” in length
- Scissors – 4” or smaller blade is best
- Mary Ellen’s Best Press-if you have it…but I highly recommend it
- Ruler – 4” square and a 6×12” or as close as you have to these sizes…if you have a 1”x6” ruler you will find it very useful in this workshop.
- Rotary Cutter & Mat
- Fine Tip Pen/Marker
