Saturday’s appliqué workshop can also be done in cotton. It doesn’t have to be silk. The kits are all silk but Christine will let everyone know what they need tomorrow if they want to do cotton appliqué. Also, they will need an 18-inch background piece for the pillow and no need to bring any silk threads as she will have them. Patterns will also be available.
