Fabric Requirements:

Try to select fabrics for your appliqué project that are tone on tone for best effect such as batiks and blender fabrics. When choosing your fabrics, think in terms of a box of crayons. You want to have lots of options to color with and for fussy cutting. You do not need an arm load. Just a subtle value variation for your chosen shades.

  • Background fabric: 15” wide x 11” high

  • Appliqué fabrics

  • If you like to fussy cut, bring a variety of light medium and dark tonal fabric (batiks work best)


  • Appliqué thread to match your fabrics

(cottons such as Aurifil 50 wt., mettler 60 wt. and DMC 50 wt.)

  • Embroidery six strand floss--one skein is all that is needed for practice.

(DMC or Cosmo)

  • 4-5 inch embroidery hoop if you wish to do some embroidery during the workshop. I prefer the Morgan

  • No-Slip hoop (5”)

  • Small 3.5”-4” sharp embroidery scissors (no children’s please) yes this matters!

  • Small scissors for cutting paper templates

(again SMALL!)

  • Your favorite appliqué needle

(I will have “My Favorite Appliqué Needles” available for purchase)

  • Embroidery needles: #9 crewel and #10 sharp. Any brand is fine.

  • Appliqué pins

(I like the Clover ¾ inch)

  • 14 x 9” piece of clear upholstery vinyl

(12-14 gauge).

  • Black Sharpie ultra fine point marker

  • White chalk pencil and a marker for light fabric

(or your favorite marking notions for appliqué)

  • A 10” x 10” piece of plain white cotton (no white print on white) to use for practice embroidery.

  • Pencil

  • Ott Style Table Top Lamp for better light to work


  • needle threader

  • sand paper board

  • Fray Check if needed

  • sharpener for chalk pencils and/or pencil
