In my blog post LIVE! from Alaska, I mentioned that I was thinking about offering workshops directly from me to you.
I wasn’t sure when this would happen as I am a Technology Resistor. Is that a term? It should be.
But sometimes the universe just makes it happen. Which means, I am offering my first (from me to you) VIRTUAL live workshop Kitchen Sink Quilting on Friday & Saturday, October 2 & 3 from 1PM – 4PM Alaska Time. What time is that for you? Click the link to find out.
Back in 2019 (oh ye old world), a guild signed a contract for a workshop in May 2020. COVID happened. Guild reschedules for October 2020 because surely life will be back to normal by then. It is not. Guild makes an attempt to offer a virtual workshop. Members are leery of such thing. Guild program director and instructor despair. What do to?
We decided that I would offer the workshop they had selected at the times they wanted, but I would hire a moderator and open the workshop up to worldwide enrollment.
Here are a few more details if you find yourself curious about this.
The Kitchen Sink Quilting Workshop is all about using up leftovers. Students are invited to bring left over fabric, quilt blocks, and strips sets–really anything that might work to create a quilt.
The 20 weird quilt blocks you won as a guild door prize will become the best thing ever! Does your design wall look like this? Well, then this is the class for you.
The workshop format features live lectures, group discussions, live demonstrations, and break out support and sewing rooms.
It is $80 US dollars for six hours of class instruction. Both sessions will be taped and available to participants for 30 days after the two live workshop sessions end.
Students will also have access to a newly formed Facebook Group for my virtual students to share work and learn from each other.
My moderator will make the online learning experience fuss free and fun.
If you are interested in joining me for a virtual quilt workshop experience, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org OR simply comment in the comment section below. I will contact you and send you a PayPal invoice. Once you pay, you will get your supply list, homework, and ZOOM details for joining the live workshop.
I know some of the components of how I am doing this are luddite-ish (Another new term?) and terribly old school. Next time, I might have a pay now button and a sleek page on my website. But not yet.
For now, let’s think of it more like a 90s rave where the only people who are in the know are the ones who need to know. RIGHT?
Let’s do it.
PS Have you taken my Kitchen Sink Quilting Workshop in person? I would LOVE to see your quilts!
