May 5 Workshop Supply List

Improvisational Piecing Workshop Supply List

Fabric: Strips at least 2”-5” wide work best, with some additional small pieces. Bring as many as you can; it's better to have variety! Use the following list as a guideline to help in your fabric selection:
  • Patterned, solids, or a mix of the two.
  • Color – be daring, think outside of the box (or at least outside the box you are usually in!)
  • Pick a colorful busy patterned fabric you like, place on a table, and then throw scraps at it, continue to add/delete fabric to create a color way
  • Variety – bring your scrap bins or fabric bundles you have lying around, think ROYGBIV (Red/Orange/Yellow/Green/Blue/Indigo/Violet)
  • Bring extras if you can - it will be fun to share with other people! And the piece that you might think is awful could be the perfect thing for your neighbor's block :)
  • If you're in doubt about whether to bring a certain fabric, yes - bring it :)

Sewing Items:
  • Rotary cutter & Ruler 12”-16”
  • Small cutting mat or plan to share large one with table mates (so you can cut at your machine)
  • Thread & scissors/thread snips
  • Sewing machine
  • Extension Cord
  • Iron & Ironing board/mat (see volunteer note below)

We need volunteers to bring the following items to share.  Please send an email if you can bring one or both.
  • Irons
  • Ironing boards/pads

It's going to be great fun to throw out all the "rules" and try something new!  We're looking forward to seeing YOU there.
