Sewing Machine English Paper Piecing Block
13th April 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£40
This class is English Paper Piecing with a slight twist!
You will be making a Classic sewing emblem picture block featuring a Sewing Machine using Amber’s first printed pattern from her developing Fiddly-EPP range. This pattern is pictorial EPP so is slightly different to other patterns around and involves cutting your pattern sheet out yourself and letting you experience non traditional shapes.
You can use scraps for these projects – but they will need to be of medium size as the shapes vary but some are larger pieces and some are small – but you can also use fat quarters or fat eighths if you have a colour scheme in mind as you won’t be using a lot of fabric and will still be left with a large amount.
If you use instagram you can look up the hashtag #FiddlyEPP and see some of the patterns made by others of this design to give you some inspiration.
This class is an intermediate skill level and suitable for anyone that has done one of Amber’s EPP classes or already knows the basics as this class is less about the “how to” and more about the actual project.
*You will need to purchase your patten ahead of class and this is available at the shop.
You may want to bring your own sewing kit and any equipment you use if you already practise EPP – you will have equipment supplied on the day and can purchase any you find useful.
