Joyce will provide a kit with a panel, backing, batting, sewing needles, and 29 different spools of thread for each student. There is no list of supplies to find, and you will learn about using different threads, needles, and colors. Just bring your domestic sewing machine (or borrow a Bernina from us) and join us for this creative and inspiring weekend.
