Along my La Passacaglia journey I found myself surrounded in a unique community of passionate individuals. The one caveat was that it did take a few months to find other English Paper Piecers! It's been almost two years and I see the community evolving everyday. I've listed a few communities I belong to and found below.
If you are near the San Francisco Bay Area, I do host a La Passacaglia meeting periodically. We share what we have to date and discuss all the cool tips and tricks we have learned along the way. Even if you haven't started it would be great to have you. It is amazing what you can learn from others making the same quilt. I also find that it gets the creative juices flowing to be in a room with so many creative people. I bet there are other meetups outside of the Bay Area, but I just don't know much about them. If you know of any, I'd be more that happy to send an email to my newsletter list.
Here are a few pictures from our first meeting in Berkeley!

Information About Our Second Meetup
We had our second meeting and it was an amazing experience once again. There were several individuals who traveled long and far for the experience. It is great to see English Paper Piecing becoming more and more popular by the day. Our third meeting might now occur until January due to Holiday schedules, but I'll make sure to keep everyone in touch! Email Me For More Information!
