$55 WGGC members / $80 non-members + $10 materials fee payable to instructor

  • Types of thread used, stitch formation, tensioning, and the tools used.

Students need to bring to class:

  • Box of 200-300 pins ("Silk" OR "Bridal" OR "Lace" pins are best) or any small headed, non-rusting pin (Look for these at Joann and/or Hobby Lobby.)
  • 15-20 color headed pins
  • Scissors
  • Tape measure
  • One clean cloth (approximately the size and weight of a dinner napkin)
  • Bobbin Lace pillow and bobbins, if you have them.
  • Lunch and beverages. A refrigerator and microwave are available for use.
