It is with regret that we must increase our postage rates wef 25th March 2019.

We have kept the same postage rates since we started Ashmead Designs but the gap is now too big.


About Us

We are a small company based in Devon (U.K.) with a passion for 'English Paper Piecing' - originally concentrated on Hexagons but now expanded to a greater range of shapes (and still expanding).
We have developed a new method of doing EPP that is quick and easy to use. The material we produce is used instead of paper and Left In! Its unique construction gives the fabric a plump, luxurious effect. Because it is left in it is fully washable. We have called our material 'Hexiform'.
Our aim is to introduce 'English Paper Piecing' to a wider audience; people who would like to try EPP but are put off by all the preparation needed for a project the size of a bed quilt.
Our range starts with a simple, fat quarter cushion that we have called a 'Wish Pillow'. We have then extended the range to include fun projects such as soft balls suitable for a child to play with, mini christmas kits, pincushions, brooches and scissor keeps. For adults, there are larger cushions and pillows to brighten up the lounge and a range of bags and carry cases.
Our kits come with the basics supplied - that is: Hexiform, acrylic fabric template (if needed), wadding, quilt panel backing, freezer paper and full, easy to understand, instructions.
