I always get really excited (& a little bit nervous) when I release my program of classes for the next term.
Since September, folks have been asking me what I'll be teaching next year! Well, you don't have to wait any longer.
You will find the full program of In Stitches classes for January to March here.
I like to rotate some of my projects through all the different classes, but I also try to put some new stuff in there too!
Like English Paper Piecing:
I had decided during the summer to introduce some EPP into my program, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I was convinced it was the right decision.
I was teaching hand applique (needleturn) and was feeling a little nervous about how this lot of hard-core machinists would take an evening of sitting still working on hand sewing projects.
Turns out I had nothing to worry about! The entire class loved the peace and quiet and stillness after a busy day, especially as they could sit and chat more! They were even much easier to teach too!
So I'm really looking forward to introducing them to some EPP next year! This small wallhanging is a good place to start, and even though hexies seem to be all the rage at the moment, I thought diamonds would give them even more creative possibilities.
Tune in tomorrow for previews on more new projects!
