This foundation paper piecing workshop is great for any sewist from beginner to advanced. There is always something new to learn! Choose any of the Violet Craft Abstractions patterns. Start with a small project like The Bunny or get started on a bucket list quilt: Forest, Lion, Giraffe, Elephant, Mt. Hood, Peacock, Desert Mirage, Wolf, Cow, Three Sisters, Unicorn, Horse, Cheetah, or Tiger. Violet will discuss general information about foundation paper piecing, best practices, and tools before students start their projects. As students work step-by-step through their projects at their own pace, Violet will support the class with tips, tricks, and techniques - including paper removal and finishing. More advanced instruction will be included as time allows. Sewing machines provided!
