Important: All fabric for projects needs washing and ironing before class (unless it is 100% polyester, nylon, PU/PVC/Oilcloth, or the finished item will never be washed/only dry cleaned). Check fabric content and any washing/ironing instructions when purchasing fabric. Many delicate fabrics are dry clean only as they stiffen up and/or shrink when put in water
