Before we had sewing machines, we just used a needle & thread. While I don’t plan to ditch my sewing machine, I do still love to hand piece. It’s quiet. It’s portable. It allows wandering thoughts. It encourages conversation. It’s so very relaxing. Come learn a few basics with the classic nine-patch block. You’ll learn how to piece straight seams and match points. Trust me, it’s much easier to match points using a needle & thread than it is with a sewing machine. Hope to see you!
