Please send your child with a small snack and water bottle each day. 

We try to keep the temperature comfortable for everyone but is best that your child has layers. 

Have your child wear sturdy shoes where the foot is not slipping around for greater foot petal control ( flip flops are highly discouraged).

If you have fabric you would like to use feel free to bring it along. We provide all materials needed for this class and have a good selection of fabric, however bringing a fabric you truly love is a great way to make a project even more memorable. Please keep to quilting weight cottons with no stretch and pre washed to prevent shrinkage.
