About This Course
Some people learn to sew in a class; some by teaching themselves; and for some it's a skill that has been passed on from generation to generation. For Cassandra it was her own Grandmother, or 'Grams', who first introduced her to a sewing machine and ignited a passion in her that still exists to this day. And now, 25 years on, we have the privilege of having them both teach a class together at The Stitchery.
For 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!
While this course is for beginners, we do recommend that you have a basic understanding of how to use a sewing machine. For example, having taken our Intro to Sewing workshop or Sewing for Beginners Course. If you're unsure, please fee free to get in touch.
