Spellbinders EPP Club

with Michelle
Welcome to the wonderful world of English Paper Piecing. Throughout 2016 we participated in the Glorious Hexagons perpetual Block-of-the-Month program. During the year we had several people complete the project and many others turning the project into "5 year" or "10 year" plans! So with a resounding "YES!" from our club members we have continued the club for 2017!

Our club is open to anyone who would like to join and learn English Paper Piecing (EPP) or you can join and dedicate 3 hours a month fduring club to your own EPP project. We don't mind! The more the merrier!
