New England 2018 Supply List Information

Some (not all) classes have a supply list. These are items that should be brought to the class to maximize the experience.

Hands-on, Stand-up class attendees should bring along a set of thread snips for clipping threads during class.

MOST domestic sewing machine classes have machines provided for your use.* Due to an agreement with the companies that so generously provide these machines, ONLY the machines provided may be used in class. 

* There are a few classes that sewing machines are not provided and the class description will indicate this.

Students should bring basic sewing supplies for all domestic sewing machine classes including: extra needles, seam ripper, paper and fabric scissors, thread snips, pins, small bag for trash, chair cushion and zip lock bag(s) to put your project in for safe traveling.

You will automatically receive the proper supply lists when you register for a class. Should you want to take a look at what is required for a particular class, look up the class in the class calendar, if there is a supply list, a link will be provided in the description. If further clarification is necessary, please feel free to contact Mary at MQX@charter.net or contact the teacher directly.
