A beginner kit for slow sewing, hand sewn English pieced patchwork, (or E.P.P.).
This kit contains everything you need to get started and to make (at least) two pincushions; a traditional hexagon flower shape plus a mini hexie shape.
It includes my workshop lesson booklet with full photo instructions including some background information about this lovely pastime, along with 30 hexagonal pieces of hand cut vintage Laura Ashley fabric (4 sets of 6 and 6 different single ones as main image).
Also included are 30 die cut card templates (with punched holes for easy pinning and easier removing once finished) and a window template. Plus white tacking cotton, coloured sewing thread, a needle and pins in a replica vintage packet and filling.
The fabric is 1976 vintage but never used; carefully kept by me. I doubt I will ever use all I have and I think this is the exact use it was intended for.
I hope you enjoy this pastime as much as I do and I am happy to help with any queries you may have.
You can use the hexagons to make other items instead of pincushions. There are enough for 2 flower coasters or appliques and the mini hexagonal pin cushion, OR 4 hexagonal flower shapes for appliqué or coasters...OR one larger piece of patchwork... for any project, as you wish!
When I ran a set of workshops on traditional textile crafts (in a museum) they were so popular it surprised me! It was fun share the technique of this simple craft, so I have combined my beginner’s booklet with some of my treasured vintage Laura Ashley cottons for a really special introduction to this craft.
