Kits and Supply lists

As many teachers are doing nowadays, I require my students to purchase a kit from me for many of my classes.  This is to ensure that the whole class can be focused on instruction and not be side tracked by students not having the correct supplies.  This also saves the student money in the long run because they don't have to run out and buy a ton of items.  I strive to keep my kits affordable, they usually run between $12 - $15 dollars for a one day class.  This price also includes the use of my Hex and applique element Dye Cutter ; light box; tools and more.  There will still be an additional supply list that the student must bring to class. The kits don't provide everything.  Upon booking the class with me I will e-mail the supply list and cost of class kit.  Students may pay me individually  by cash or check at the start of class or the Guild organizer can collect it and pay me at time of class.
