month Michelle will be teaching you everything there is to know about
English Paper Piecing. It’s a fun, portable method of piecing quilts, or
creating shapes to applique onto bags, shirt or whatever! And maybe
you’ll become addicted to EPP like Michelle is!
arrangement, but of course you can do anything you like. Take your
inspiration from other English Paper Piecing sites on the internet, like
here http://www.flickr.com/groups/englishpaperpiecing/ But if you’re a beginner, I recommend the 1 inch hexagons to start with.
We recommend that you purchase a pack of “Patchwork
with Busyfingers” 50 x 1 inch hexagon papers, which also come with a
perspex template for cutting out your fabric. You can get these packs
from Addicted to Fabric in Phillip, or online from Busyfingers. We
can organise getting a pack for you for under $11, but ONLY if you get
back to us by Sunday 10 June! This is so it gives us enough time to
order online from Patchwork with Busyfingers. So please mention that you
would like a pack in the RSVP on the blog post. If you’d like to buy some of the hexagon papers, but don’t want a full pack of 50, let us know and we’ll match up some people to share kits!
You can also find EPP hexie templates free online – you’ll need to print these and cut them out then bring them along to the meeting. You’ll be able to find loads using Google – here’s an example we found. You could also find different sizes or shapes the same way.
The meeting is on Sunday June 17, from 1:30pm – 3:30pm, at the Downer Community Centre.
You need to bring:
with Busyfingers” 50 x 1 inch hexagons, which comes with a perspex
template from either us ($11) or Addicted to Fabric OR your printed and cut out papers
Of course if EPP doesn’t take your fancy we’d still love to see you! Just bring along whatever you’d like to work on! =)
forget to RSVP on the blog post, especially if you want us to purchase
you a kit, before Sunday 10 June. And if you have any questions, ask
away and one of the prefects or Michelle will answer your questions.
See you soon! xo
