What to bring with you
At the Stitch People Gathering, we’ll provide some things like treats to eat and a small kit but you may want to bring some things with you. Here ‘s a list of what we recommend:
- Your current project and/or projects you’d like to show everyone
- A couple of safely stored needles
- 1 frame or hoop in a size that’s not too bulky to carry
- 14 count Aida (as much as you like but pre-cut to fit your frame)
- Floss in black, white, skin (1 or 2 colors), hair (1 or 2 colors) and your favorite clothing colors
- Small scissors or a thread cutter (not your favorite scissors)
- A notepad and pencil
- A refillable water bottle
- Comfy and warm clothing
- A smile and a desire to learn
