  • Have you been meaning to learn how to foundation paper piece for ages but just never got round to it?

Did you answer YES to any of those questions?

Then this Masterclass is for YOU!!  
This masterclass is 'on-demand', that means you can watch it whenever it's convenient for you, pause and replay whenever you want.  Go at your pace, get the best seat in the house and you'll still be able to ask whatever questions you might have using the question boxes in each lesson.

  • my quick method for FPP piecing;
  • how to make sure the points match up accurately;
  • how to fussy cut bits of the fabric print into pattern;
  • and many other useful tips and tricks.

  • a downloadable PDF printable workbook; 
  • 13 video lessons totalling just under 2 hours; 
  • my Afternoon Tea FPP Pattern, containing five blocks to practise on.

If you are a member of Quilt Hive please be aware that the Month 7 module covers the topic of Foundation Paper Piecing.  The teaching lessons are pretty much identical, apart from the fact that we use a different pattern.  So you may prefer to wait for that module and buy the Afternoon Tea Pattern separately.  Alternatively, if you want to learn using this pattern and continue to have access to the FPP learning material if you ever leave Quilt Hive, than you might prefer to buy this course. :-)

I've been teaching sewing, patchwork & quilting for over 10 years and I'm excited to help you.  

I have absolutely LOVED helping every single one of my customers develop and improve their sewing, patchwork & quilting skills.  It's truly rewarding to see students progress and have 'lightbulb moments'.

I love teaching, breaking topics down into bite-sized chunks and making it achievable for all!  Since moving most of my teaching online it's been eye opening to realise that most people learn better this way: working at their own pace and having more time to practise; but still getting time with the teacher to ask questions.
