Thank you for being brave and willing to join me in our design workshop during next meeting. I think it will be an amazing trip, if you're willing to try with me.
We will have the two class times next session, just to manage bodies for the table-oriented workshop next month. Please be mindful and come to either the 9am or 10:30am class time in January only.
Here is a (hopefully) straight forward list of items you can bring in January:
- Around 50 paint chip cards from any home improvement store. These are the free cards in the paint section. Choose a range of whatever colors and tones that jump out to you. The 50ish you select won't all look good together. These will be used as reference cards during our workshop.
- 20 - 4x4 fabric squares, two each of 10 different fabrics. Look through your stash and find 10 fabrics that you love just because you love them. They will not go together. Cut 2 - 4x4" squares of each of them, if you can stand it, giving you a total of 20 squares.
A couple of things to remember. You will be willing to give one of the duplicate squares you cut, so half of your 20, to the group to use. And everyone else will do the same thing, so you will have a chance to pick through a group pile. Please do not choose fabrics based on wanting to seem attractive to the group pile! Bring what you like, who cares about anyone else. This is a very individual workshop project.
Please come even if this idea stresses you, or you didn't find time to get your supplies ready. I really think it will be fun.
There will be no Show and Tell in January. We will be introducing Session 8, which begins in February, and you can sign up for it after January's class. Session 8 will be one class time, beginning at 10am.
We will not have the Bring a Friend day in January, like we usually do, because of this workshop. Please do bring friends to check out our group in February instead.
After class in January, we will have Open Sew. Let me know if you want to participate and didn't sign up. We have a limited amount of space, as you may or may not have noticed.
I hope this is clear for you. Let me know if you have any questions at all.
