Supply list for 2/15/2014 Pieced Hexies Buffet Workshop with Mickey Dupre’

  • Sewing Machine – have bobbin loaded with your favorite piecing thread
  • Ironing Pad or a thick towel
  • Iron

NOTE: Ironing stations can be shared by up to 4 persons

Fabric:
*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.

Thread

  • 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.

Notions:

  • 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.
