Wonderful 1 Fabric Quilts - Full day class

This is a very new process to make a queen quilt top using but one fabric. Students will be delighted designing fun quilts with a few magic cuts and arrangements. This top is made with one fabric which eliminates the frustration of matching a number of fabrics. A great quilt to have fun quilting and learn about design. Students can expect to nearly complete the top. There is no need matching fabric, pinning layers, or special tools.

Rotary cutting and piecing experience required.

Lectures/Trunk Shows:

$400 plus expenses

Workshops:

$35/quilter for 3 hour and half day classes;
$45/quilter for whole day class
(15 students maximum in a 6 hr session)

I do make multiple days available in the area so every quilter has an opportunity to make a great quilt. Students will require 1/2 to 1 full standard size tables (NOT, narrow "half tables") for workspace. They are handling a lot of yardage. There must be wall space for design cloths. There must be adequate electrical outlets for sewing machines and a couple of irons.

Miscellaneous:

All travel expenses are to be paid by the sponsor: mileage (per current IRS rate), airline from Lansing, Michigan, shuttle/taxi, food and lodging.

Book sales revenue is not split with the sponsoring organization.

I am sure you will enjoy this new quilting adventure and I look forward to hearing from you and the group/shop you represent.
