English Paper Piecing......Class Offering



20 years ago I discovered English Paper Piecing...






It is the art of using paper to give shape to fabric...


Hexagons, Diamonds, Dresden Plates.....and more!




This is a class sample I started this weekend:


Dresden Basket






It is so relaxing to put your feet up in the evening and stitch by hand






I also take these along on car, train and airplane trips and stitch along.






English Paper Piecing requires only a few tools....






Everything fits in a Ziploc and travels along with you!

Here is more information about this class offering:

I'm about ready to start on some tiny hexies. Wish you were closer to the midwest!

P.S. Love Gunnr's personality. Always makes me smile!

I have never been a fan of EPP, but power to you! I just have one tiny suggestion to amp up the style factor while carrying a hand stitching project around - I use cigar boxes. They're sturdy, not see through, pretty hard to break, and your pins won't have a chance to stick through a plastic bag at inopportune moments. Plus, you can mod podge some scraps to the outside for a personal style burst.
