East Side Neighborhood Group — July 20

July 13, 2010

7 pm. Needle Nook Fabrics
We’ll be making “To Go” boxes.  Please bring:
1.Sharp fabric scissors – for trimming thread and precise cutting out of four small triangles.
2.  A few people to bring a small rotary cutter and ruler, if you have them (Beryl will bring one set with a mat, but it would be faster to have a few.)
3.  Scraps of fusible web, if you have any.
4.  One size 14 topstitching needle (the large eye will help prevent thread breakage when overcasting the edges).
5.  If you would like to make the small box using your own fabric: bring two fat quarters, a good quality polyester thread for coordinating satin stitch edging, 1 yd of ribbon or string for the ties, and 3 buttons (1/2″ or 5/8″).
