Beginner Paper Piecing Class

Curious about foundation paper piecing?  Bring your sewing machine and learn the basic techniques by sewing your own beginning blocks. Once you master the technique, you’ll be ready to tackle more intricate quilt blocks.

In class we’ll discuss foundation paper piecing basics, how to pick and print patterns, accurately placing fabric pieces and combining pieces to make your block.
