KANTHA WORKSHOP (1-2 DAYS)

Materials 

A variety of fabrics can be used but remember we’ll be hand stitching layers. 

—scraps for the “top”

—light weight batting or flannel or just a layer of a cotton fabric for the middle 

—fabric for a backing, again needle-able. 

(Small projects are probably best for experimenting. Perhaps 10 x 14 to 18 x 24 inches.)

Thimble (optional but quite advisable; my favorite-Clover Protect and Grip)

Scissors

 

Straight Pins

Safety Pins (to “baste” layers OR spray baste OR fabric glue OR baste with needle & thread) 

 

Tracing Paper (helpful in transferring designs) or paper to cut out designs

Pencil

Ruler

 I'll provide sashiko thread and needles. The materials fee will be $3. 

 

Prior to Class:

—Bring a design idea. If using appliquéd shapes, bring patterns drawn on paper for figures you’ve chosen. —Optional: baste a sandwich (top of patches, middle layer and backing), so you’re ready to stitch.
