Please bring the following:
-Sewing Machine in working condition
-Two (2) contrasting cotton fabrics (we will cut this fabric to a -12 inch square at the workshop, DO NOT pre-cut the two fabrics)
-4 Buttons to be hand sewn onto the finished fabric box

There is NO COST and you will leave with a completed project for the Fair. Some sewing knowledge is helpful, as this is not a beginner’s project. A sample of the project is available at the UW-Extension office.
