Lectures and Workshops
What good are my designs if I can't share them with the quilting world? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an event for your guild or shop. Better yet, scroll down to my Presentation Inquiry form! So easy, and guarantees all the info I need to help get us started!
A look inside my yearlong stint as a member of the 2014 Quiltmaker Magazine "Scrap Squad," a select group of 6 quilters from across the continent tasked with redesigning one pattern from each issue entirely in scraps. Each assignment led me not only into the morass of scrap hoarding in my own studio, but also inspired me to create several of my own designs based on the originally assigned projects. Lots of thoughts on what makes a good scrap quilt, why scrap quilts are my favorites, and insights into how one idea morphs into so many more during the design process. You'll never look at a quilt pattern just one way again! Lecture Fee: $350
With all the free content out there for quilters today, it's harder and harder for those of us trying to run a business to convince quilters of our patterns' worth. Believe it or not, there's a whole lot that goes into pattern design, and I'm putting myself out there and being totally honest about exactly what all that is - AND how much it costs along the way.
If you've ever felt cheated by the price of a pattern, if you've ever thought designers are rolling in profits, if you've ever considered dipping a toe in pattern design, or if you just want to enjoy what I promise will be still a delightful and fun presentation, consider letting your guild know about this new lecture! Lecture Fee: $350 Note: This lecture is informational and entertaining with some visual aids, but does not contain tons of quilts.
Workshops Workshops are priced at $375 for a six hour class with a short lunch break in the middle, or $200 for a three hour workshop.
