Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
You’ve tried the basics of English Paper Piecing and want to learn more. Catherine designed a mug rug pattern to enhance your skills as you learn how to baste tight corners and curved lines before stitching your pieces together — whip stitch on straight lines and flat-back stitch on curves. Catherine will show you how to appliqué your sewn motif onto a background and then finish your mug rug before the class is over.
