English Paper Piecing!
We will be exploring the geometrical wonder that is English Paper Piecing during the CFA Guild's June class! Used to help make crisp patterns primarily in quilting, paper piecing can be used for many creative projects!
Come learn and show us what you can do with this new skill, like one of our members below who is made her Japanese Rice Bag last during last month's class with fabric she'd put together!
Fifth Stitch of 2023!
In 2023, CFA Guild will provide the opportunity to learn (or revisit), foundational embroidery stitches We will take a short time each month to learn and practice one stitch and will over the course of the year, use those stitches to build and decorate a Christmas tree ready to frame, make into a pillow or be part of a holiday wall hanging. Each tree will be a unique creation since each person will select his/her own background fabric, tree colors and decorations.
Throughout 2023, in addition to our regular programs, we will set aside time to introduce a new stitch each month, with a short demonstration and an opportunity to do a quick practice of the stitches.
After each demonstration, you will take it home to complete that part of the project, then bring it back each month for a demonstration of the next stitch you will add to add to it.
Four Stitches Down!
We learned stem stitch in February, which will be used to create the branches of our Christmas tree.
Members of the guild will have access to instructions and videos to help them learn the stitches even if they cannot attend the meeting.
