One of the few things I find more rewarding than finishing a quilt is teaching quilting. For years I taught general and specialized quilt-making classes at our local technical college and nearby quilt shops. I succumbed to different life demands and stopped teaching for awhile, but, baby, I’m back!
And I’m extremely excited that we’ve begun scheduling Quilter’s Thread Summits.
Our Summits are workshops, but they are so much more than that. They are creative sessions that will change the way you quilt.
Even in my most basic classes, I talk about “thinking like a quilter.” There are certain ways that looking at your construction “like a quilter” really makes things better. In our Summits, I won’t just be challenging you to “think like a quilter,” I’ll be challenging you to “think like the quilter you want to be. ” And, I’ll be preaching that you “make every quilt your own.”
In our first summit, we’ll be focusing on making traditional blocks your own. I work on this all the time, and I can’t wait to see, after a little instruction and a lot of challenge, what our Summit attendees decide to do with these common blocks. Please consider joining us!
Live well, quilt well.
