On the Road Again

I'm off to LaConnor, Washington tomorrow for session 3 of the Level 2 Stitch Course at Gail Harker Creative Studies Center. I thought you might like to see how much stuff I pack for class supplies. This of course doesn't include any clothing, toiletries or stuff for the dogs so the car is packed to the brim.

 I have everything on this 6 foot table. The clear tub on the bottom is all dyed fabric and the green and pink containers are thread. The briefcase bag on top carries all my art supplies and the white and red bag is folders and homework. I'm not supposed to blog about all my homework so there are some things I haven't shown here. But you'll get to see them all in time.
 I have always wanted a set of threads with a range of colors for machine embroidery. These are Sulky threads (#30 cotton) that I ordered since I didn't have any #30 cotton thread. Yummy! I'm sure I won't have the color I need though as I always need a slightly different shade then what I have. (note to self - buy more thread)
Here's the pile of stuff from the other end. Another bag with lots of other supplies such as interfacings, Peltex, soluble fabric etc. We will be working on machine embroidery this time so I am taking my sewing machine as well. It's not an expensive machine but does everything I need it to do. The fishing tackle box holds all the small supplies and equipment. I am excited about the upcoming class and I can't wait to see all my classmates homework and how they interpreted our assignments. Have a great week and I'll give an update about the class on my return.
