Sewing
Students need to purchase their own fabric and thread for their sewing project. If there are any situations in which a
student will be unable to obtain fabric and thread please let me know and we will work something out. Fabric can be
found at Wal-mart, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, and Micheals. The best fabric to get is 100% cotton fabric

½ yard of 100% cotton fabric
Wish List
Since the county is on a tight budget, I have a limited amount of money I can spend on food for my classes.
Donations for the students’ food labs are very helpful in bringing down the cost of food for this class. Below is a list of
items that will be used for most of the food labs and other basic supplies we use for various projects in class. Every bit
helps!! Thanks for your support!
