DESCRIPTION COMING SOON! SUPLLY LIST: 1. 9.5 x 9.5 hoop (or 10.5 x 10.5 hoop if you purchased the upgrade), 10.5 x 16 hoop 2. Stylus that works with your machine. I recommend the Meko stylus sold at Amazon. They cost about $14 for 2 of them. 3. Bobbins. You can use prewounds or match the color of your thread. 4. Thread. You can use all one color or coordinate and contrast with your panel. 5. Dahlia panel. There are many choices on Amazon, Etsy, and fabric stores. The panel needs to be assembled together with batting and backing before class. Use pins or 505 or your own way. WE WILL NOT HAVE A WAY TO DO THIS IN CLASS!! I recommend thin batting. It?s easier to get in and out of the machine which you will do often. 6. BRING A LUNCH! 7. If you have any questions, call me at (916) 205-0059 or email me at velda.aldous@yahoo.com.
