in hand epp link party

***"in hand" is no longer running. a big thank you to all my contributors for sharing your lovely projects, but i've made the decision not to host anymore. anyone looking to link up their epp projects should check out some of the other link parties out there such as "slow sunday stitching" at kathy's quilts.

this is a link party for all the english paper piecers (epp-ers) out there. every second saturday of the month join in the link party to showcase your english paper piecing (epp) projects.

epp is such a satisfying and addictive sewing method. it produces beautiful results. i love the slow, steady pace of the handwork and the portability of the project. quilting on the go, anywhere, anytime! and i do mean anywhere. i recently took some epp with me on a backpacking trip to half dome. (read here.)

as any epp-er is aware, these are longterm projects. it takes ages to produce results. this is part of the charm of epp. it also maybe makes posting about it online not as exciting because it seems repetitious or dull. "yeah, here's another block that took me a whole day to complete. looks just like the last one." i hope this link party will help us get those epp projects out in the open. i really want to encourage each other along in these slow but wonderful results. lets cheer for every bit completed as only fellow epp-ers who empathize can.

i am so excited to see the epp projects you have going. tell your friends & lets round up as much epp as we can. i know it's out there!

party schedule and links


1. any posts about or containing your epp projects are welcome. ideally, participants will be showing any new pieces, wips or finishes, completed in the month since the last party.

2. please link directly to the post featuring your epp project or newest accomplishments, not to your blog home page. this helps visitors find the project they came to see.

3. this is a party, so socialize! we all love when people visit us and leave a comment. reciprocate with your fellow party participants by visiting fellow partiers and leaving a comment. comments make a bloggers day. try to visit and comment on 2 or 3 other links.

4. in your post, please link back to the link party. if you have a permanent link on your sidebar or a link party page, that's great. please also mention the link party in your post. this helps others find more goodies to look at and gets the word out about the party.

  1. Hi Hideeann
    I would like to join your party, however I have only one project almost done (Get your Hex On) and am envolved with inchyhexagonswap for less than an year....
    I´ve done two mini-mini quilts using EPP shells
    if you think I can join, just tell me

  2. do the hexagon projects in your link up have to be done EPP or is hand piece acceptable - I use the Inklingo method of printing fabric on the printer and then doing a running stitch by hand


a kind word is always appreciated. thank you for your visit.
