Classes have been booked through 2011 – so feel free to sign up ahead of time! You don’t have to wait for this email to register. This email is just the supply\project list. November & December dates have been modified to accommodate the holidays so check the calendar at Amelia's.

IMPORTANT – You must have at least a 5 x 7 hoop or larger to do this project. If your machine only accommodates a 4x4 hoop –you will be able to stitch out any of the Alley Cat designs – but you will NOT be able to do the class project. 
The pieces for the pumpkin basket are larger than 4x4.
Purchase Design Set from the following site and load designs PRIOR to class.
Choose one of the ALLEY CAT'S from your purchased design set (there are 12 to choose from!) for the front of your basket - also pre-load the pumpkin shapes, including the stem.
You will make the FRONT of the pumpkin basket in class - and complete the basket & back pumpkin at home.
