After two busy weeks of shows, QuiltCon in Austin, TX and The Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, WA, Amy has a few days at home before she heads off to The Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Lakeland, Florida. If you will be at the show, you can find her in the Early Times Workshop booth on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Also, be sure to stop by on Saturday at noon when Amy presents the Magic Fashion Show!
I love adding piping to pillows, bags, even garments! I think piping adds a neat, professional appearance to a finished project. Of course, it’s not easy to find piping pre-made in the perfect coordinating fabric. I think sewing piping is a skill every sewer needs – which is why I knew I had to share this piping tutorial with you, originally posted by Elle Apparel.
