What is in your Go Bag? I’m prepping for a class on Saturday and I’ve been gathering things I want to be sure I have to demo. So, I thought, I’ll share! I’ve talked about my hand sewing box but what about some of the things that go with me to class.
First, I always take my “Flat Mat Bag” (pattern is available on my website). It holds my 18″ x 24″ mat and 24″ ruler and a lot more, including my Go Bag of notions. I usually have more things than I need, but better to have them, just in case. A look inside of what I usually carry…
My small rotary cutter is easy to protect in an oils cardboard tube. I was excited to find that it fit in the tube. A good way to protect the blade and everything around it.
#1 – Use a cardboard tube to protect your rotary cutter/blade.
#2 – Keep notions together so they are easy to find and grab to put in your Go Bag.
Saturday will be a Hex-a-ma-jig class with one of my local guilds, BVHQ. Blackstone Valley Heritage Quilters. I’m excited to teach this class on my tool! We’ll be cutting Hexies and creating a Hexie quilt of their choice from one of the quilts in the instruction booklet included with the tool.
Last weekend I participated in Tree for Hope in Upton, MA. Proceeds to Charity! Below is the tree I made. “Ties” to Christmas Past! A special thanks to Shari for passing the ties on to me.
