Rope Trivet & Bowl Making

Here’s a fun break from your regular sewing. Learn to make rope trivets and bowls. Using cotton cord, thread and some fabric learn the basics of this popular craft. You will make a trivet or coaster and a bowl. If time permits Michelle will show you some advanced techniques as well.

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: Open to all skill levels. Must have working knowledge of your sewing machine.
Supplies Needed:

Sewing Machine in good working order that does a zigzag stitch -- you must know how to use your machine and how to set to this stitch. An extension table for your machine would be helpful.
Assorted 1" strips of fabric
Spray Starch (we recommend Best Press) to reduce fabric fraying
100' of 1/4" (or 3/16") Cotton rope (for stiff projects you need rope that has nylon core)
Cotton Thread - 40 or 50 wt, we recommend anything other than white or beige, so it can be seen while learning. Variegated thread such as King Tut or YLI is fun to work with. (Polyester thread will melt if trivets are used for hot items)
3-4 x Wound Bobbins
Jeans/Denim needles, size 14 or 16
Zig Zag Foot
Recommended book: Zig Zag Rope Sewing Projects
Lunch and/or snack
