About the Craft
English Paper Piecing is a very versatile, highly portable, approachable, and extremely low-cost method for quilting without a sewing machine or any fancy materials.This extremely accessible medium is simple, customizable, and fun for all levels, beginners & experts alike! The end result of this step-by-step instruction will be a beehive themed hexagon mini-quilt made from paper and fabric.





About the Event

With approx. 230 participants, our February collaboration with the Utah Museum of Fine Art was a huge success and we’re thrilled to be bringing that same creative energy to this new hands-on quilting activity with the UMFA! In this FREE workshop, attendees will receive two complementary quilting kits, one from Craft Lake City and one from our co-host, Hawaiian quilting artist Moanike’ala Revoir. Participants will have the option to work on either or both of their quilting kits during the session and will be able to take the rest of the materials home to continue their quilting journey! Pre-registration is required and spaces are limited.
