Red face Redwork is not in my future...

I won a $10 gift certificate from Quilting Bee Designs from the July FabShopHop! But I have never done any redwork. I need some suggestions as to what I should order considering I don't do redwork and don't really plan on doing any in the near future. Maybe some needles or ??????? Thanks for the help!

I see they have pigma pens which are good for writing on fabric for labels or signature quilts.

you can use their redwork pattern as an applique pattern, if you prefer applique.

I now use Sulky's Sticky FabriSolvy. I can print out the design using my home ink jet printer. Then I put this on top of my material and hoop it. Pattern is easily visible. After the work is done just rinse in slightly warm water, maybe add a few drops of dishwashing liquid and the FabriSolvy dissolves!

Do they carry threads? I have been wanting to try the dissolving thread that you use for trapunto. How about some machine thread in a neutral colour? How about the Golden eye or easy thread needles for burying your thread tail in machine quilting?

I have seen the sticky fabrisolvy and wondered if it would work, sounds like something I might have to pick up myself, I stick the pattern to the window and put the fabric over top (well taped) and trace with a pigma pen the same color as I plan on embroidering with. This works good with one color, would have to use neutral for multi colored embroidery.
