I’m excited to announce a schedule of classes I’ll be teaching for the summer of 2019!
The classes will be held in my home, where I’ve set up a bright, air-conditioned, and ergonomically-correct work area that can seat up to six comfortably. Refreshments will be provided, including the usual coffee, tea and cold drinks, and cookies and/or cake, of course, because we all need cookies and cake.
Included at no additional cost will be Topolina, the official quilt dog, who promises to behave (but I never really expect her to keep her word — if you’ve met her, you’ll understand).
Of course, when you sign up for a class, you will receive my advice and encouragement as well as instruction. There are additional perks as well: my enormous fabric stash will be available to you, enabling you to enhance your own fabric choices at extremely reasonable prices (ranging from $9 to $11 per yard). Also, as I now have wholesale access to the Aurifil Supply Closet, (Yipee!) I will be offering neutral shades of my favorite thread, 50 weight Aurifil, at only $9 per large 1,422 yard spool.
Please bring a bagged lunch along with the supplies listed. We will take a half-hour break for lunch. When you call to reserve your place in the class, I will email a supply list to you.
I will also continue to provide private lessons at my home or yours. I’ve been enjoying the opportunity that private at-home lessons give me to be able to teach in a calm and inviting space where there are no interruptions, disruptions or distractions. I’m pretty sure that group lessons will be just as pleasant!
Stay tuned for info about a guided retreat. I’m still working on the details.
