Teaching Schedule for the Rest of 2019—Australia + New Zealand and MORE

Being a traveling quilt teacher is something I have long dreamed about being. Now that it is a reality, I often think about just how UNGLAMOROUS this life style is. The logistics are maddening, the time in the air is tedious, and the details of teaching can be nerve-wracking. Still, every time I have caught up on my sleep, I look forward to my next teaching adventure. It is weirdly addictive.

In the hopes that one of my upcoming gigs is near you, I am going to share the rest of my teaching schedule for 2019.

Next week, I am Grand Rapids, Michigan for AQS QuiltWeek. My workshops are full but there is space in my lecture—Building Community through Quilts which is scheduled for Friday, August 23, 2019 from 1PM—2PM.

After that, I will be in St. Charles teaching for the Prairie Star Quilters Guild.

And that my friends is a wrap for 2019. After that, I will be hunkering down to prepare work for a solo show at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont next summer. More details about that fun adventure will be forth coming

Are you taking or teaching classes anywhere fun this fall? I would love to hear about it. If you have questions or comments about my teaching schedule, please contact me or leave comments below. Thank you!

    Such exciting quilts! Had hoped to see you in Asilomar! Do you ever do online workshops or lectures? Do you have a book? I really think your quilts are so artistic!!!! Pam.

    • Dear Pamela–I will be at Asilomar this year! I do teach and lecture online, and I do have a book. You can find out details for all those things on the home page of this website. Thank you! Happy New Year! Maria
