PAPER PIECED HEXAGONS CLASS
Skill level: no experience necessary!

You’ll learn the whole process, start to finish, and come away with knowledge you can use to make hundreds of projects!
2.5 hrs : $30/ person (limit 6 people per class)
Tues., May 8 @ 6:30 – 8:00pm

Can you thread a needle and make a simple hand-sewn stitch? Are you looking for a fun chill-out project that you can take anywhere? Paper pieced hexagons (also known as Grandmother’s Flower Garden, or “hexies”) may be perfect for you… This is an antique art turned modern! A little history lesson will be given in the beginning, explaining the origin and progress of this unique art. In this workshop, you will learn two different methods for hand-basting your fabrics to a hexagon paper template background. You will also learn how to stitch them together to make any number of items (such as quilts, pillows, appliqués).
Hexie templates will be provided (cost included in workshop). Please bring fabrics (pieces larger than 3” square), or purchase some at our shop before class. All scissors, thread, and needles will be available at the shop for use.
