Paper Piecing All Year Round - A Valentine with Bow or a Valentine with Arrow (10:15 am - 2:15 pm) POSTPONED - Future Date to be determined



Start with the book "Paper Piecing All Year Round", by Mary Hertel, and stitch your way through the year with Marilyn and other paper piecing enthusiasts.  Or just register for a class or two t learn the techniques.  Stitch a couple of Valentines for those you love and be ready for February.

Paper piecing is a simple and straight-forward way of sewing a design into a project.  It allows even the newest beginner to have sharp points and detail.  It is also a creative way to use up small and oddly shaped pieces of fabric that might otherwise have been relegated to the scrap bin.
