Yolanda Fundora

Lecture: Why I Learned to Love Paper-piecing.

In person at Grace Episcopal Church

A bit of back story about my life as a fine artist, illustrator, product designer, designer of fabrics for the quilting industry and why I taught myself paper-piecing and adore it despite losing a bit of hair on the journey. 

Workshop: You Too Can Have Paper Piecing Fun! 

In person at Grace Episcopal Church

You must be vaccinated to attend and show proof. Please wear a mask.

For those who want to embark on the paper-piecing joy ride. You don’t have to be afraid!

We will cover the basics of foundation paper-piecing in the traditional style where you get to enjoy ripping paper and throwing it everywhere! And toward the end of the workshop I will show you one way to design your own paper-pieced block with construction paper. Yes! It’s back to kindergarten days and if nothing else we will have fun.
