Hi there! Thanks so much for taking the time to pop over to my website! I'm Jodi, and my husband Tim and I laser cut English Paper Pieces in the old hospital in Castlemaine Victoria, about an hour and a half north of Melbourne, Australia.
I write a monthly (ish) newsletter about what I'm stitching, special things in the shop, and stuff I love to listen to or watch in the background while I sew. And I love to find cool stories about historic quilts and sharing them with you. You should totally sign up!
ECO-FRIENDLY PAPERS AND PACKAGING.
From the moment we started thinking about creating a beautiful, yet disposable craft product, I knew I wanted to make a commitment to keep our business eco-friendly. I already felt uncomfortable about the amount of single use plastics in my house. I didn't want to start making them! And so, we became the first and only manufacturer of English Paper Pieces that uses 100% post-consumer recycled paper and packaging. We also use plant-based, biodegradable cellophane to keep your order protected from the weather as it makes its way to you! And we only cut to order, so that we create absolute minimum waste when we make your Paper Pieces and Acrylic Templates.
Instagram is my favourite place to be online! I love sharing daily EPP inspiration. I even have a special hashtag day for my favourite and most popular quilts! Want to join in?
