It's Paper Piecing for the 21st Century

Are you curious about paper piecing?  Do you and paper piecing already have a love/hate relationship?  Do you love the accuracy you achieve, but hate the process of getting there? Well, this class will change that to a LOVE, and kind of an addictive relationship.  We’ll be using the versatile, graphic, complex, quite simple Storm at Sea pattern to learn my “No More Tears” © method of paper piecing.  Although we won’t be finishing the entire project in class, you’ll have a good start, and the tools you’ll need to finish it at home, in half the time you’d expect from paper piecing.  Don’t believe me?  You’ll just have to come and see for yourself.

"After almost 20 years of teaching, I can say that my "No More Tears Method" © has been wildly successful. It's a joy to watch students' faces when they realize paper piecing can be easy, quick, and best of all ... fun. So, let's have fun with paper piecing!" - David Sirota

Supply list:


You'll need to print out paper piecing patterns in advance. The PDF for printing the patterns will be sent shortly before class.  17lb Vellum paper is recommended
