PLEASE CHECK THIS LIST ON MAY FIRST IN CASE WE ADD SOMETHING. There will be a separate file for menus and any other information that is important. There will also be an emergency contact paper that we will ask you to fill out and bring with you to the retreat.
Sewing machine, embroidery unit, foot control and power cord a new USB stick, the box with all your feet (15000), all the feet (12000). For the 12000 you need the usb cord. The acrylic table is optional.
Blue tip needles, small scissors for threads and another pair for cutting fabric appliqué. Bring the necessary items to clean and oil your machine. Tape measure, marking tools, pins. Also cutting mats, cutters, and rulers. We will need some ironing boards and irons. Please let me know if you plan on bringing them.
I will be doing a demo on Acu Fil, If you want to work with the program after class, bring the hoop, large magnets, tape measure, panel, batting, and backing. (batting and backing should be about 3 inches bigger all the way around.) Also thread, bobbins, scissors, quilting needles either 11 or 14.
Make sure if you have the 12000 you load the program on your laptop.
We will be learning how to use the screen saver tool. You will need a cd with 10 or so pictures on it. Some work great and some do not. Don’t bring the camera!! You need them on a cd or on the desktop of your computer or on a separate usb stick.
To do the Horizon Link software you will want to bring a laptop. I have some to lend out. First come first served. Make reservations. Bring the power cord and a WIRED MOUSE!!!! There is no exception to this. If you have the 15000 you also need to bring the ipad.
For the appliqué class you will need a pre-wound bobbin and the following colors of thread: You can use all black or 2 shades of green, white, orange medium blue and chocolate brown.
For the free motion class you will need thread and I’d wind two bobbins of thread. The fabric is like muslin and you can bring a natural thread. If you bring a contrasting thread, you will see your work better.
Snacks are provided in between meals. We can bring snacks to share. Keep in mind that there will be three buffet meals on Saturday. There will be lots of food. There are beverages provided all the time in our sewing area. We can have the cash bar either Friday or Saturday or both. Interest???
The girls that are doing open sewing should bring projects to work on. They might want to do either the appliqué project or the free motion quilting class. I will have enough kits if they decide. The girls that are taking the classes can also bring projects to work on in your free time.
Bathing suit (optional). If you want to swim or use the hot tub the bathing suit is required!!!
Bring comfortable shoes and clothes. The resort has a golf cart to assist you with your belongings.
Please let me know asap if you have any dietary restrictions.
We are so excited to have all of you going on the retreat!! It is my goal to make sure that everyone has a great time!!!!!
