Shopping List

Grocery lists were a big deal in our family. We grew up making one each week before the big shopping trip. Our mother even divided the lists into the various sections of the store (produce, dairy, deli, bakery, etc.) so that we'd be sure to remember everything we needed. So naturally, we're inclined to make a shopping list so that you'll have an easy reference for all the tools and materials you'll need to have handy to make all the projects in the book! This is just a list- for more detailed explanations of the particular tools and their uses, check out the first two chapters of the book.
