A Bit More …

Sew and Quilt is an online shop based in the idyllic location of Cornwall, England, founded in September 2012 by Jessie Fincham - also known as Messy Jesse! (which you might recognise me as, from my blog; I'm an avid quilter and hugely passionate about English Paper Piecing, having fallen in love with the traditional technique after discovering it in an old patchwork and quilting book from the 1970s a number of years ago. Though it was only until I lucked out in a local auction house in recent years - winning a lot containing a treasure box full of Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks and hundreds of pre-basted hexagons, did I really get hooked! Since that time I've has made a plethora of EPP sewing projects and has contributed to a number of publications on the topic. 

In 2015, after selling EPP supplies for years previous, I decided to take the plunge and set up my own line of Sew and Quilt Paper Pieces (#SewandQuiltPaperPieces) offering a much wider variety at an affordable price for customers. Our English Paper Pieces, along with all our products are carefully thought through to provide a unique selection of products that we would not only use ourselves, but are incredibly proud to share with you. In 2016 we released our first EPP Block Of The Month program which turned out to be tremendously popular and swiftly led to my husband, Robin joining the business full-time not long after. 

On Sarurday March 18th 2017 we plan to open our doors to the public for the first time with our brand new shop premises in Penzance, Cornwall. We can't wait to meet you all then! 

Please let us know if there’s anything we can assist you with or ways that we can improve your shopping experience. If you are looking for a particular EPP shape/size, please don't hesitate to contact us and we can look to add this to our collection. I also love seeing your projects made with our EPP shapes and fabrics, feel free to share on our social media sites or email me.

Best, Jessie.
