Did you know?

So, why is it called English Paper Piecing, you might ask? Well, just like our cold English winters make us lovers of tea and biscuits, they also make us big fans of quilting and patchwork! The technique of paper piecing is particularly popular in England, which is why we get to have our name put smugly in front of it.
