About the Event

 

 

Hello everyone,

Thanks for signing up for Debbie Jean's workshop.  Below you will find the supply list.  Don't forget there is a $2.00 kit fee.  

You can bring your lunch or purchase a hot lunch from Fireside Lanes.

 

NOTIONS CUBE WORKSHOP

At Home Pre-Woshop Homework

•Unfortunately, in a group setting, the cutting and ironing process can be quite time consuming. It actually takes Debbie Jean an additional two to three un-interrupted hours to sew the cube after she has already cut out and pressed the pieces. Thus, to make the most efficient use of our time and to ensure completion success, participants will need to cut and press the all of the pieces prior to the workshop. That way, everyone will be in construction mode at the beginning of the workshop.

•Note: Cutting mats and ironing boards will not be provided and are not necessary since the participants are expected to have done the pre-workshop homework.

•The pattern strongly suggests labeling the pieces to keep from getting mixed up. For the participants’ convenience, the last page has cut out labels to use.
