Fabrics for Boro Patching

-a few medium sized pieces (maximum12 inch square) for backing fabric

- fabric scraps: a variety of fiber and weight and size, solids and patterns 

-optional:  bring a fabric you’ve bought but find problematic to use
-fabrics should be suitable for hand sewing, since we’ll be needling through layers

Scissors for fabric and cutting thread 

A thimble (optional but a good idea)
