PICTURE PIECING - PART 2 - with Callie Hargiss



We are happy to welcome guest instructor, Callie Hargiss, as she joins us for two days of sewing fun. 

In these classes, you will learn the art of "Picture Piecing". This is a unique technique developed by Cynthia England to achieve detailed quilt imagery. This is not Paper Piecing or foundation piecing in the traditional sense... this technique is so much more! While you do use paper and straight seams, Picture Piecing has several differences, allowing quilters to achieve detailed imagery more efficiently, with less frustration and fabric waste. Best of all there is no paper to pick out, no curved or inset seams,  patterns are reusable and you can CHEAT!
