My classes are designed to teach a technique using one of my quilts as a starting point, rather then a scripted 'follow these tried and true directions' class. My goal is to provide hands on guidance so that students can create their own interpretations of the quilts shown below. Students are provided a line drawing as a launchpad, and then we work together during the class to make it their own. Classes are one day and sewing machines are not required during class time.
Leave the machines at home and let's spend the day creating, fusing and having fun! Then go home, ready and inspired to appliqué your wall hanging at your own pace. I will discuss both appliqué and quilting techniques at the end of each class. The full day classes are designed to run from 9am to 4pm, with 1 hour for lunch.
Full day class cost: $500* (plus travel and living expenses)
* NOTE: Due to my hands on teaching style, classes are best suited for up to 10 students. For classes with more than 10 students, the price will be adjusted. Maximum class size is 15.
Optional additional days are available for those who wish to learn my appliqué or quilting technique in a hands on environment.
Open Class Opportunities
As I am invited to teach by guilds, groups or organizations, I will post the info here, as it is available, in case you are interested in joining the class. The cost for these classes are not the same as listed above, as it is determined by the organization inviting me to teach, who sets individual student prices.
