Stitching & Sweet Tea... Intro to EPP with Christie Jones Ray
Won’t you join us.. for a morning of stitching and sipping.
Saturday, July 17th 10am to noon | Walton Creek Farmhouse. 321 Chandle Loop, Centertown, KY 42328.
We’ll have sweet tea at the ready, and all you’ll need to bring are your good scissors and favorite sewing needles. I’ll be sharing my love for English Paper Piecing...also known as EPP...particularly the hexie. I will provide the old fashioned calicos and ginghams, the EPP hexie papers, and the thread. I’ll teach my favorite tips and tricks, and once you have basic knowledge, you’ll be able to create anything from a small cushion (pattern included with workshop) all the way to a hexie quilt ...and anything in between.
I have created Mousie-sized, Dolly-sized, and Teddy Bear-sized hexie quilts for my Storybook Characters. When I illustrated a Grandma’s Flower Garden quilt for the end papers of my book, Eliza Visits Martha’s Vineyard, it became a goal to learn how to make the real thing. Now that I have, I want to share the joy of this craft that has been passed along for generations.
