Please join us on Tuesday, February 25th, 9:30-11 am, for this introduction to hand piecing - with a little twist. This session will be led by Beverly Douthit, Carole Brightbill and Janet Humphreys. We will be using paper hexagons, glue, fabric and thread to make these adorable “flowers”.   This is open to all levels of sewing - from experienced to beginners.

English Paper Piecing (EPP) is a method of hand piecing using paper templates to stabilize fabric. Historically the technique originated in England in the 1700s and was brought to the United States out of popularity and necessity. Fabric is basted to paper shapes using thread or glue and the pieces are then stitched together, most commonly using a whip stitch. It is a precise method, allowing the quilter to create accurate shapes, whether simple or complex!

We will have lots of examples of quilts made with this and other methods.
