Piecing The Generations

Some people learn to sew in a class; some by teaching themselves; and for some it's a skill that's been passed down through generations. 

For Cassandra it was her own Grandmother, or 'Grams', who first introduced her to the sewing machine. Weekends spent at Grams house were all about making dolls clothes, stuffed toys, and little quilted blankets. Now, 25 years on, we have the privilege of having them both teach a class together at The Stitchery.

Tag-teaming it in this one-day workshop, Cassandra and Andrea will be taking students on a practical journey into the art of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP). For the uninitiated, FPP is a special quilting technique used for applying small, intricate shapes to quilts, wall hangings, tote bags, or just about anything made of fabric. For this particular workshop, students will be creating the Feathers FPP by Sometimes Crafter. And we're betting that by the end of it, they'll be wanting to put feathers on everything!

The workshop will be running on Saturday 30th May. For more information and booking, check out the event page here.
