You will also need to purchase the binding, batting and backing for this quilt.  It is preferable if you wait before making those purchases as we will discuss the various options in the workshop.

There may also be a few more tools or notions that you may find useful as we progress through the quilt.  These will be discussed in the workshop.

  • If you wish to pre-wash your fabrics you can although this is a personal preference.  If you do wash your fabrics, make sure your fabrics are ironed and ready to cut in the workshop

  • You will receive a 5% discount on fabric purchases, for the purpose of this workshop only. If you are an existing Sewing Club Member, the additional 5% discount will not apply.
