I travel far and wide to lecture about and teach patchwork. There's so much to learn and be inspired by in the quilt world; being out on the road is a treat for me.
My lectures are about an hour apiece. Each lecture is tried, true, and guaranteed to be a smash. My classes focus on patchwork, typically in a "make-a-block" format with heavy emphasis on fabric selection and contrast. I offer tips and share industry trends, too. Workshops are 3-hours apiece. I have many quilts to bring for a trunk show, as well as my book, Make + Love Quilts: Scrap Quilts for the 21st Century, to sell and sign.
A typical day with your group might look like this:
- Lecture 1 in the morning + 3-hour afternoon workshop
- Lunch break
- Lecture 2 in the evening (for full guild or larger shop audience)
