Supply Check List 
The following is a basic sewing kit every student of sewing should have. Please bring in: 

o Sewing machine - PLEASE include its power cord & foot peddle and manual.
o A very basic machine can be found at Walmart/Target - type retailers $100’ish or under. Call first, as all locations will not have a fabric dept/sewing machines. Or find a used one in the classifieds.
o Sewing machine bobbin case + 2 extra bobbins.
o (1) Spool of thread any color except white.
o Sewing machine needles - Size #11- #14.
o Scissors - ‘Dollar store’- type scissors, when new & sharp, will suffice.

o Iron and ironing board (buddies can share ).
o Packet of hand sewing needles.
o Large lidded box/plastic storage container /or similar to store projects in.

Mark/code/label all of your items, big and small.

Note: SEWING MACHINE MUST BE IN RUNNING/WORKING ORDER. I cannot stop the class to diagnose/repair machines. Run a scrap of fabric through, then inspect both the top AND bottom stitches. (Although I have sewn with the many machines brought into class over the years, I am not qualified to diagnose or repair one). Avoid the disappointment of a camper seated at a machine that just isn’t working up to par. Note: Machine age/price is of no significance. I still own and use my low budget high school sewing machine.
