The benefits of hand piecing include socializing while sewing (!!), relieving stress in a quiet setting, using simple techniques, hand piecing is a perfect portable project.

Hexagon paper piecing is a time honoured technique dating back to at least the 1830's, hand stitched they can be assembled in modular units. This workshop is an introduction to the basic skills you need to paper piece hexagons, learning three different methods. A very satisfying patchwork skill that can be used so many ways, purse making (really cute!) cushions, wall art, quilts, or homeware projects. Hexagons can also be made in a variety of sizes according to your project, a really versatile way to use fabric scraps.
Always wanted to hand quilt but never sure how, this workshop will teach you the basics of hand quilting using the 'running' stitch method.
