If you would like to make your own table runner, remember to measure the longest side of your table and bring following items (many items can be borrowed if you don't have them).
- Sewing machine
- Two yards of two different (but complimentary) fabrics at least 44" wide (depending on the size of runner you want). Cotton or cotton/polyester is preferred for beginners.
- Spool of thread to match fabrics
- Any desired embellishments (ribbon, tassels, rick rack, etc.)
- Straight pins, pin cushion
- Fabric scissors
- Tape measure
- Marking pencil/chalk
