Supply List - Beginner Projects


Many of these projects are from the “Sew Fun, Sew Easy” patterns, and some of these pattern sets may be available for sale at “Sew Creative Café”.


We have listed the most popular projects here.  It is possible to sew other easy projects that are not listed here – speak with one of the teachers beforehand.


We also have pre-cut project kits available for sale at the classroom, as well as some fabrics, bags of stuffing, batting, some thread, elastic, and cord, etc. We have many books of patterns for special quilts at the classroom – some are easy and some are more challenging. 

See us in advance to determine supply list for these.


We can also embroider simple names, etc. at the classroom to personalize a project.

Speak with us about the cost for this.


Most of the supplies for these projects are available for purchase at our classroom, but you can bring your own.
