You may sign up for workshops at the PROGRAM TABLE at Guild meetings or contact the Program Chair. Unless otherwise noted, workshops are held at Country Stitches, 9am to 4pm. Cost for the workshops vary.

Refunds will only be granted for special reasons or if a waiting list for the class exists AND you can be replaced.
While people are free to go out for lunch, most people bring their lunch because there aren`t convenient places near by.

August 15, 2019Lynn Carson-Harris presents Do it for the Process

Lynn Carson-Harris will be giving a lecture "Do it for the Process." Lynn will share some of her quilts and talk about her journey from the first quilt she made as a teenager in 1976 to her current work. She has found that the steps of making a quilt are often more meaningful to her than the completed quilt. Focusing on the creative process rather than the finished product allows her time in the studio to be filled with play and discovery.

Gundrun Erla from GE Designs, lecture and two classes.
  • The workshops will be on Friday October 18th and Saturday October 19th at Country Stitches.  Cost of each workshop is $45.  Sign up sheets are available at meetings.
  • The Friday workshop features your choice between two patterns - Stella or Crooked Patch. Note that the Stella pattern is Layer Cake (10 inch precut squares) friendly and the Crooked Patch pattern is Jelly Roll (2 1/2 inch strips) friendly, so this is perfect to use some of those precuts you have! If you don't have precuts that is no problem!
  • The Saturday workshop features your choice between two patterns - Aurora and Lupine. Both of these quilts were inspired by Gudrun's home Country - Iceland.
Scanned pictures of the four patterns are included below - Supply lists for these classes, will be provided as soon as they become available.
