We always have lots of odds and ends of fabric and trims on hand for little details, so you really just need your main fabrics. You can also bring adult clothing that you wish to re-purpose if you prefer.

If you’d like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord) and arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.
