Introduction to English Paper Piecing (EPP) - Fabric Bowl on Zoom (in person session coming in spring)

This fabric bowl project is a fantastic and useful introduction to English Paper Piecing (EPP)!

English paper piecing (EPP) involves stabilizing fabric pieces with paper before sewing them into intricate designs. It is most effective for shapes that do not have long straight sides and will require numerous set-in corners, such as hexagons. Because EPP is done by hand, it makes a terrific on-the-go project and requires few supplies to enjoy this mindful, relaxing hobby.

Skills demonstrated:

You will learn to cut from templates and how to use pre-made paper templates, how to baste your fabric to the papers and how to correctly stitch your pieces together. 

Trust us, you will want to make dozens of these practical cute bowls that use up your fat quarter stash!

This class is split into 2 sessions to allow time for some homework in between. Don't worry, there won't be that much to do in between sessions. 

This class is takes place on Zoom. You will need an electronic device with the Zoom app installed. The Zoom link will be sent out within a week of receiving your registration. This class will be recorded for later viewing instead of providing a class handout.
