ENGLISH PAPER PIECING (EPP) CLUB

First Friday of the month at 10am in the classroom

Ready to explore the world of English Paper Piecing?  Or have you already caught the bug and want to learn more?  Then come join our English Paper Piecing (EPP) Club.  Call the shop to get your name on the mailing list for Zoom invitations.  If you want to learn, Nancy Austin will help get you started and she also helps us research new patterns and design trends for today’s quilters.

From the classic Grandmother’s Garden blocks to today’s beautiful millefiori fabric patterns, English paper piecing has appealed to quilters for several generations.  Perhaps because it is portable and relaxing or because of the popularity of today’s “slow quilting” movement, EPP is once again being embraced by quilters.  There is no charge for the meeting.

 

WOOL CLUB

First Friday of the month at 12pm in the classroom

 And for our wool enthusiasts, our Wool Club meets at noon on the first Fridays of the month.  This is a fun group with no limit to their excitement and enjoyment of wool work!  Hand stitchers of all levels are welcomed.  There is no charge for the meeting.  Call the shop to get your name on the Zoom invitation email list.
