Your completed (very simple) homework and a small pair of scissors.
Everything else will be provided, including a wonderful selection of beautiful threads and floss.

It's very simple knitting or crochet so don't be scared off by the word 'homework'.

About Tif Fussell
Tif Fussell also known as Autumn has spent many a wise year with needle and thread or yarn in hand. When asked about her favorite thing to create with yarn it is always squares and rectangles and surprisingly she has found many ingenious ways to make such a simple thing become so much more with a fold here, a tuck there or a gather around the back.
Embellished with some woolly tattoos (Tif’s coined phrase for embroidering with wool) and it may be true to say, what looked quite ordinary suddenly can look quite extraordinary.
Living just outside of Seattle for more years than she cares to recall, Tif has recently opened up ‘the fabricated & the found’ ATELIER with her youngest son Marlon and spends most days pottling around their space, making, playing shops & counting her blessings.
