Needle and Thread

Dates and Time: 

July 9 - English Paper Piecing 
10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Learn the basics of EPP (English Paper Piecing.) We will discuss a few different methods of basting fabrics to the paper pieces and how to stitch them together. Beginner kit is provided. Kit includes paper pieces and fabric to make one hexagon flower. You will need to bring hand stitching needles and thread (Naomi recommends Aurifil!)

August 6 - Embroidery Basics
10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Grab a tea towel and learn basic embroidery stitches - back stitch, lazy daisy, stem stitch, etc...
September 3 - Hand Piecing
10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Naomi's hand piecing sample is made from an elongated hexagon and random 4" x 6" fabric pieces for a very scrappy quilt. You are welcome to do the same. However, if you would rather start with a different pattern, feel free to discuss with Naomi. We'll discuss pattern choices, templates, notions as you stitch pieces together.

Cost: $15
