Paper Piecing Workshop

Have you ever seen intricately pieced quilt tops and wondered how in the world they sewed all those tiny pieces together so perfectly? Here’s a hint, it’s actually a LOT easier than it looks! Learn the art of paper piecing, a quick and relatively easy way of getting tiny scraps of fabric sewn together to make beautiful scenes. You’ll be amazed at what you can create and have it come out perfect every time.

We will be making four scenes using this cool technique that would be perfect for making ornaments, coasters or wall hangings. You can rummage through your scrap bin for pieces larger than 6 inches or get a few fat quarters and come join us.
