Creative Webinar: English Paper Piecing

Page Content: 

English paper piecing (EPP) is a hand sewing method used to create intricate geometric shapes with y-seams. It’s my absolute favorite technique to incorporate into quilts – both for the process of sewing by hand and how the finished product looks. Check out this picture-packed webinar to learn how to English paper piece, tips for putting together an on-the-go EPP kit, the way its portable nature opens up doors (literally and figuratively) for sewing outside of your home, and how this method can be combined with other sewing techniques to create dynamic quilts. This meditative, slow, relaxing sewing technique has the potential to transform the way you quilt.

Anna Boenish is a 27 year old queer quilter living in Seattle, WA. Her signature style features English Paper Piecing. She adores this hand sewing technique because it allows her to construct intricate geometric shapes and sew outdoors. In addition to sewing, Anna is passionate about public libraries, social justice, and public transit.
