Combinations, length, even content of my workshops can be tailored to the wishes/needs of your group. It is easy to combine some of these, and lengthen others for multiple days if desired. I do not list many classes based on single patterns….Starry Path, Flying Geese, Crazy Patch, Feathered Star designs…or almost any other of your choice, but these are easily arranged as half or full-day workshops.
In addition to the classes listed below, I teach "Pineapples Plus" and "Firm Foundations" at Quilt University. Please contact me or check with Quiltuniversity.com to find out when I'll be teaching there next.

My lectures are geared for groups from 25-300, and are fairly informal although full of a lot of information. I will be doing the presentations with computer and LCD projector, yours or mine. I’d also like a couple of tables for displaying quilts and books. And at the end, I’ll need two tall quilters to hold up some of the large quilts.
Perfect Pineapples: beginning with Log Cabin quilts and proceeding to the ultimate center-based Pineapple. Slides, many quilts, and a lot of words about my favorite pattern.
Firm Foundations Updated: A survey of design categories ranging from classic patterns through innovative contemporary designs and an overview of where we are now with this old-made-new technique we take for granted. In addition to the three basic techniques we’ve all used for years, there are now several times that number of ways to work on foundations. Clever innovative tweaks make the technique even more versatile, no matter what the design or project. Slides, quilts, and words.
Making a Blue Ribbon Quilt: what you need to know about what the judges look for , so you can put your best foot forward in a competition. How judges work, what are the major parts of the quilt critique, and even if you never enter a quilt contest, how to make your quilt the best you can, for your own satisfaction. Slides, quilts, words.
Painless Pieced Borders: a complete overview of all the ways you can design and piece borders to frame your quilts uniquely. Specific design categories and techniques are covered in detail, working from very simple to pretty complex pieced borders, all of which will frame and enhance your work incredibly. Slides, quilts, and words.
