Trunk Shows and Workshops Available

Trunk Show - "Give it a Scrap Slap"- NEW!
A look inside my yearlong stint as a member of the 2014 Quiltmaker Magazine "Scrap Squad," a select group of 6 quilters from across the continent tasked with redesigning one pattern from each issue entirely in scraps. Each assignment led me not only into the morass of scrap hoarding in my own studio, but also inspired me to create several of my own designs based on the originally assigned projects. Lots of thoughts on what makes a good scrap quilt, why scrap quilts are my favorites, and insights into how one idea morphs into so many more during the design process. Lecture Fee: $300


Trunk Show - "Perfection is Overrated"
A lively presentation of Beth’s quiltmaking journey, from her first frighteningly awful attempt at self taught quilting to eventually founding EvaPaige Quilt Designs with her own line of unique patterns. Included are thoughts on the design process as it unfolds in 20 minute increments in the midst of the chaos of running a home and raising three small children, how a quilt can be a thing of beauty even without matching seams and perfect points, and the many joys of bringing her designs to the masses and discovering that they often can become converts to the freeing idea that “perfection is overrated”. Lecture Fee: $300 

Trunk Show - "Plays Well With Others"
From the days of Quilting Bees on the prairie, quilting has always been a social hobby. This lively lecture focuses on group quilt making in today's world, taking us beyond guild Block of the Months to swaps, round robins, and specialized group projects to show how adding more quilters with more ideas into your projects will create fantastic results. Lecture Fee: $300 


Workshops
All workshops are priced at $375 for a six hour class with a short lunch break in the middle.

"Round Robin in a Day" Group Quiltmaking Workshop
In this workshop each participant will work to help complete four 36” square quilts with a center block and three unique borders. Each participant will arrive with a completed 8 ½” (8” finished) block which reflects the theme and colors of their desired wall hanging. Working in three “rounds” or blocks of 1.5 hours per border, the style or technique of which is determined just prior to each round, participants will design, create and add each round’s border to a quilt belonging to different class participant, working on three other quilts in all. At the end of the workshop, each participant should have a completed 36” square quilt that reflects not only themselves but the unique ideas and approaches to quiltmaking of his/her fellow workshop participants. A willingness to allow others to dictate the direction of a piece you started and the abilities to work well in a time sensitive environment and to move from one task to another easily are requisite to this class, as well as the completion of the center block prior to class. Note: Due to the nature of this class, this is recommended for Intermediate level quilters and up only. Class length - 6 hours plus lunch break
