A virtual class with Catherine Redford
Sept 10, 10:00am-12:00pm CDT
Just getting started with English Paper Piecing and want to learn more? Make a cute mug rug while tackling narrow angles and curves.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks 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.
