Class requirements for Valerie’s Dresden Plate class
There are two sizes of papers available -
Miniature Dresden DREO4, which makes three blocks approximately 3.25inches in diameter.
Medium Dresden DREO8B, which makes twelve blocks approximately 6inches in diameter.
For a traditional effect use small prints or for a more modern look try Batiks or one of our other fabric ranges.
You will also need -
Thread for tacking
Bottom Line and fine needles such as Straw needles for piecing
Pencil, good scissors and a small ruler
Card to make a template and plastic covered paperclips, I will have both of these with me.
Once the plates are made you will need fabric for the background, Roxanne basting glue and some fine pins.
Putting the fabric onto the papers is slightly different to the more geometric shapes and this will be explained at the class.
It would be appreciated if you could let us know in advance which size of Plate you will be making so that we can make sure that we have in stock.
I look forward to seeing you on the day.
