Paper Piecing: From Concept to Completion

Join us for an intensive, exclusive, three-and-a-half-day retreat of focused instruction to learn paper piecing design from modern quilt master Violet Craft. This small group setting will allow you to learn and grow in your paper piecing, from design and sewing techniques to finishing.
Violet will teach you how to adapt a drawing for foundation piecing and then dig into the project and start sewing! You'll learn master-level techniques for foundation paper piecing and English paper piecing to best complement your design. Students can use one or both techniques in their finished project.

Foundation Paper Piecing

Foundation paper piecing is a great project for any sewist from beginner to advanced. There is always something new to learn! We will begin our time discussing general information about foundation paper piecing, best practices and tools. 

Then we will begin our project together and work step by step through foundation paper piecing. More advanced students are encouraged to move forward while I work with students requiring more hands on instruction. If time allows advanced techniques will be covered  with students who are ready for them. Throughout the class period I will stop the group and demonstrate as questions arise.  

Before the end of our time together we will cover paper removal, finishing and quilting.
