Quilt Guild Events

My live virtual lectures are suitable for modern, modern traditional and traditional quilters, and of all skill levels. They are an excellent introduction for quilters who are curious about modern quilting trends.

I hope that you will consider inviting me to lecture over Zoom.

I offer a variety of lectures conducted over Zoom, each with a unique presentation and interactive discussion.

I make an effort to accommodate your Guild time Zone—even internationally. (I am located in Florida.) I am currently scheduling through early 2025.

In Person Guild Lectures & Workshops

I have decided that I will not be offering in-person lectures and workshops.  I know that I will miss the in-person camaraderie, but this decision is the best option for my life and family commitments.

I hope that your guild will consider my virtual options as these events have been well received by many, many guilds.
