Interested in Learning More About English Paper Piecing? Take My Class Next Week At Lakeshore Sewing!

Hi. I’m back from an excellent trip to Seattle and busy catching up on all my projects. I spent the day stitching my ArtPrize entry yesterday and will resume work on the project today after a much needed workout at the Y. I will tell you all about my Seattle adventure soon, but for now I want to let all you local readers know about a class I’m teaching next week. This is the same technique I’m using to create my ArtPrize entry. Read on for the class details and I’ll be back soon!

Introduction to English Paper Piecing
Lakeshore Sewing, 1011 Gezon Parkway SW, Wyoming, MI
Time: 9 a.m.-noon Tuesday Aug. 24

Learn to make hexagon flowers with this very addictive hand-piecing technique popular in 1930s quilts. For a very modern twist, machine sewing techniques can be used to turn hand-sewn hexagon flowers into attractive drink coasters.
Difficulty Level: Beginner
Cost: $15 for class; $6 supply fee (payable to instructor) for kit to make one coaster

Please stop in or call 616-531-5561 to register.

I hope to see you there!

Jennifer-
I wish I lived there. This sounds so great. I am just getting into sewing and I think I was really inspired by your podcasts with Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner and many, many more. Thank you for doing them. I really enjoy them.
Dana
P.S. Your quilt is beautiful!
