Contact for more information.



1-Day Workshop, February 19, 2019

Come and spend a day exploring English Paper Piecing (EPP). We’ll start with a discussion about
needles, thimbles, tools, notions, fabric preparation & thread choices. Working on a throw pillow (or
whatever you’d like your hexies to become, such as drink coasters) you will learn several techniques
for fussy cutting motifs, basting your fabric to the templates and stitching the hexagons together.
You’ll also be introduced to an invisible hand appliqué stitch so you can appliqué your rosettes or
other EEP motifs onto a ground material. (As an added bonus you can use the appliqué stitch to hand
stitch bindings and labels on to your quilts.)
