WIP Wednesday #81: Foundation Paper Piecing Club & Soft Vinyl

Our NEW Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) Quilt Club #2 is here and I hope you are considering joining the fun! Tune in today for all the details you need to know to join this new club. 🙂

Here at Crafty Gemini we host several online courses and clubs each year. This is always the most exciting time of year for our small team. These courses/clubs take a ton of work and we’re usually working on them behind the scenes most of the year. With each new course/club we release we are always looking to improve to help even more students develop and enhance their sewing/quilting skills while completing some fun projects.

This new club is all about practicing your foundation paper piecing skills but without the commitment of making a quilt! We are going to turn our blocks into functional little zipper pouches, instead! It’s going to be a lot of fun and we hope you’ll join us!

The FPP Quilt Club #2 will be open from Feb. 15, 2023 at 2:00pm ET – Feb. 24th at 11:59pm ET. After that, it closes and no one else will be able to join until we are done with all the blocks. When we re-open it it will be at the regular $137 price. So, if you want to save $$ sign up today for just $97: https://craftygemini.com/shop/crafty-gemini-quilt-club-fpp-edition-2/

    Thank you, Vanessa, for the fun “pre-club” tutorials – so detailed and complete!
    I never really wanted to quilt (I am older and have always sewn), but this looks like doable projects, cute and small.
    I am looking forward practicing and learning!!
