Want to create a gorgeous hand-sewn 12-block sampler quilt with the utmost precision? Want a portable project for your road trips? Want to learn how to giggle at y-seams and curves? Then this series of classes is for you. We will start with easier blocks and gradually transition into curved piecing. Each class introduces you to two new patterns and provides you with the paper pieces for this months patterns.  You will learn the tips and tricks for perfect EPP. At the sew-all you will have the knowledge to tackle any EPP project out there. 

The teacher, Jean Smith, works at Bay Quilts on most Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays and is available to consult about fabric choices.

In July we'll tackle the Star of Bethlehem and Octagon Chrysanthemum.

Be warned, EPP is highly addictive!

Skill level: ✂️

You do not need previous sewing experience to do EPP.

Supplies: You will receive the fabric requirements once you sign up. Jean will review the types of fabrics that work well in the first class and Bay Quilts is glad to help you select fabrics for your quilt.

Sewing Machines and Equipment: You will need some basic sewing supplies that will be included in the supply list. You DO NOT need a sewing machine.

About the instructor: 

Jean Smith has been quilting for close to 25 years and still finds the art form exhilarating. You may have met Jean as she works at Bay Quilts three days a week. She specializes in English paper piecing and foundation paper piecing. Before joining Bay Quilts, Jean spent almost 34 years working at UC Berkeley’s Office of Public Affairs - never a dull moment. Jean currently lives in Berkeley with her two dogs and would rather sew and spend time with quilters than do anything else…except eat chocolate.

Location:

This class is being held at the Bay Quilts located at 5327 Jacuzzi St. 3-C, Richmond, CA 94804. Bay Quilts is run by Sally Davey and her daughter, Abbey-Shane  a team of lifelong artists and crafters who have been in the quilting industry for over 30 years. They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together.  This unique fabric shop is so much more than a store - from consignments quilts and gifts, and cloth figures to monthly gallery exhibitions and artist receptions to workshops.  Bay Quilts is a sanctuary for creatives of all skill level. Bay Quilts is generously offering a 10% discount to students on the day of the class.

The classroom space is on the 2nd level so you will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs. There is a convenient caddy so you don't have to carry your equipment up the stairs.

Cancellation Policy:

Class fees are non-refundable. However you may transfer the class to a friend if you let us know in advance.
