Enjoy hand sewing? Then English paper piecing-also known as EPP-is for you. In this class you'll learn the techniques to create hexagons, then whipstitch seven finished hexies together to form a flower. EPP papers come in myriad shapes and sizes and completed shapes are great for adorning bags, aprons, and more. We'll talk about using machine and hand appliqué to do that and if time permits you can appliqué your flower to a dishtowel, as shown in the photo. (Toweling is available in at Home Ec Workshop and we recommend purchasing and pre-washing it before class.) Included in the class are 15 paper hexagons to get you started, and an appropriate needle.
Supplies needed: fabric scissors, pins (appliqué pins are great if you've got 'em), fabric scraps to use for your hexagons, and sewing thread that blends with your fabric.
