English Paper Piecing 101 with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
If you've ever dreamed of putting together beautiful pieces of fabric to create heirloom quilts, cozy throws, baby blankets, pillows, or applique patches, this is the class for you. Join the slow stitching movement and learn the art of English Paper Piecing (EPP). No sewing or quilting experience necessary! Beginners and curious crafters highly encouraged.
Using small pieces of fabric, pre-cut paper templates, and a few easy hand-sewing skills we teach in class, you'll create stunning one-of-a-kind patches that can be used for quilt blocks, home decor, and fashion applique. Walk in with your curiosity and walk out with an EPP quilt block (the classic hexi flower). Talk about instant gratification!
You're going to LOVE your new craft obsession! English Paper Piecing is incredibly portable and requires no sewing machine, meaning you can take it anywhere with you - it's the ultimate road-trip project. Fair warning - make room for some fabric in your stash.
