What to bring (These are optional)

  • Bring along a mixture of your small pieces of fabric including patterned, neutral and plain in the colours you envisage for your journal cover and that you are happy to tear apart ie old quilts, shirts and hand dyed fabrics that speak to you.
  • Look for soft and pliable fabrics that will be pleasing to rework, treasured trinkets ie old buttons or broaches, the older the better, hand me downs, laces/ribbons/doilies you are happy to part with.
