  1. I just read through your 2 latest tutorials, plus the template tutorial. The step by step instructions are fabulous. Thankyou so much for sharing.

  2. Yesterday I was able to open your Easier than Pie beginning tutorial, but today when I try to, I just get a blank screen. ?? I wanted to share the link with a beginner to EPP and hexies but can't now.

    1. Thanks Kathy - I touched nothing and I changed nothing but you are right about the link! I've reposted the booklet and the link appears to be working just fine now! Computers!!! Give me a sewing machine any day!

      Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Interesting and you've hooked me on returning to more hand projects with hexagons!!

  4. Hi, Karen. Great tutorials. This is just a heads up for HP Printer owners. I could not get the 1" hexagon template to print to that size. I had to enlarge it to 106% and then it was just right. Just FYI - might not be a problem for others.

  5. And yes, I had unchecked the fit to size.

  6. Great tutorial here--I have just gotten patters for Briton hall and this is a great way to start for me....thanks, Julierose

  7. Thanks so much for all of these wonderful tutorials. I'm definitely late to the English paper piecing party, but you've helped me so much.
