Teaching Schedule 2017

I am very happy to say that I am not leaving the great state of Alaska until the end of April. In the meantime, I will be hiking, knitting, and hopefully creating some new quilts worthy of sharing. This year, I want to finish many MANY quilts. My goal is 36! I know that is a tad unrealistic, but part of me also knows that while I will most likely fail at reaching that goal, in my failure I will get a heck of lot done. So I do it.

I have been invited to teach at some very special places, and I hope you will consider joining me.

My first gig of the year is here in town.

Lincoln, Nebraska
April 27 – 30, 2017

I will be attending the annual SAQA conference. This year’s conference is called “Creation to Curation” and is in partnership with the International Quilt Study Center and Museum. This is a bucket list destination for me.

While at the conference, I will be hosting two Lightening Round Talks which were a huge hit at the 2016 SAQA Conference in Philadelphia. Essentially, these are one hour long talks with eight speakers each talking for 6 minutes and 40 seconds about 20 images.

If you are SAQA member—and I hope you are—you can watch six of these talks in this webinar

    Was very sad that I couldn’t fit one of your classes into my Quilters Affair schedule.

  3. What an exciting schedule! I see you are teaching at one of my favorite places in the world–Sisters!!
