Hey there makers!
I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far! Have you seen the English Paper Piecing trend that has taken the social media world by storm? From cute hexies to fussy cut designs and everything else you can make with this technique, I’m just fascinated! As if English Paper Piecing isn’t amazing already, our fabric designer Pat Bravo and AGF Sewcialite Mister Domestic have joined forces to create the most epic English Paper Piecing Party! Yes, you read that right...they’re going to be hosting an EPP Party.
If you’re obsessed with EPP or you’re looking to learn a new sewing technique, join the party and have fun! Here’s the scoop on how to be part of this epic event:
The EPP Party will run for 24 weeks (beginning on May 1st) and Pat and Mathew will share 1 EPP block every other week on their blogs. Don’t worry if you can’t finish your block in time for the next week. This is all about having fun with the process.
Make sure to share your WIPs under the hashtag #EPPparty on Instagram for a chance to win prizes from their sponsors.
Throughout the 24 weeks, the dynamic sewing duo will be sharing tips and techniques in Youtube videos to help you with each block that’s released. Pat will be creating her EPP masterpieces with her new collection Indie Boheme Fabrics and Mathew will be sewing his with Dare fabrics.
So grab a needle, some thread, fabrics, your favorite shape and let’s start EPPing!
