What do I bring to U-MAKE? (Equipment)

Here is a partial list of items that you may want to bring. For our projects that involve sewing—bring a sewing machine THAT YOU HAVE SEWED ON AND KNOW HOW TO OPERATE IT. Bring the foot treadle, too. And things like pre-wound bobbins, thread, seam ripper, scissors, utility knives and your portable table top sewing table. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a particular item because others will share and explain the benefits of the particular type of applique scissors or table top table. There is sometimes a difference in seam rippers! It is amazing the things we learn at Kitemaking Events!

And don't over-pack!  If think you won't use it, don't bring it.  If you think maybe...check with your classmates...will one be available for you to use in class?
