Due to the concerns about the health of our Guild Members, the March meeting has been cancelled. We will reschedule this fun activity when things are back to normal.
Hexies are sweeping the quilting world. Also known as English Paper Piecing, the technique is a great “take along” project, allows precise piecing, and is a great stress reducer.
Join your fellow Guild members for a productive social meeting on March 19 to further explore the technique as you get an opportunity to work on a project, get help with techniques, and learn about Millefiori quilts– all while having a time to socialize and get to know your fellow Guild members.
What to expect:
— A take along handout with techniques, tips and resources, including tips for getting started and an introduction to the beautiful Millefiori quilts.
–An opportunity to work on an existing project or get input from other quilters about starting EPP.
–If you’re new to the craze, there will be kits for you to make a border or motif for a tea towel or place mat
–Not your thing? Bring your knitting, other hand work, or just use the opportunity to join your friends for an evening of witty repartee and good cheer.
What to bring:
Your own project if you have one
Needles, neutral threat, scissors and (if you choose) your own fabric. (We will have some fabric available). Note: needle choice is a personal thing, but you may want a sturdy needle if you want to thread baste, and a finer needle (such as a fine quilting needle or a milliner needle) for sewing the pieces together.
