Traditional English Paper-Piecing Class at Slowfiber
Friday, September 22, 2023 - 9:00am
Slowfiber presents a workshop on traditional English Paper-Piecing (EPP) taught by Lyn Sandberg on Friday, September 22, 9am-12pm. Fee is $55. Please register on our website.
Sweet little hexies. We love them and they're not just for quilting anymore. They can be used for applique and surface design, too - whatever you can dream up! Lyn will teach us the traditional way of cutting, basting, and whip-stitching these little treats together in this hand-working class. No sewing machine is necessary to become a paper-piecing hot-shot. Making hexies will help you with all the other paper piecing shapes you want to do.
EPP is a historical technique that goes all the way back to the late 1700s, really gaining traction in the early 1800s in England when fabric and paper were precious.
