If you would like to continue on with what you get started at this instructional class then you may want to bring your own cotton fabric. If you want to just learn the basics of toothbrush rug hooking then you can use the provided materials for practice that evening. If you decide to bring your own fabric you will need to bring 2" strips of (not knitted/stretchy) fabric that should be ripped and not cut. Cut strips of fabric creates too much fraying. We're looking forward to this unique class! $15 per person; RSVP
