Sustainable Stashing: Creating an EcoFriendly Quilting Life


LIVE session – June 20, 2021 at 7 p.m. Eastern. Followed by access to Ondemand modules and Facebook Group

DATE & TIME:  Live Session takes place on June 20, 2021 at 7 p.m. over Zoom

Interested in creating a more ecofriendly and sustainable quilting life? I’m launching a new workshop –a combination of a live session, ondemand modules and a Facebook group.

Sustainable living has become more important to many of us…so how can we use those ideas to create a sustainable stashing process to support an ecofriendly quilting life?

I’ve been a champion of #SewYourStash for years and I’m learning more about the importance of being a conscious consumer.  I know that I’m on the right track to a sustainable quilting life  and I’ve learned a lot along the way.  I decided to create this workshop to share what has actually worked for me.

Like all quilters, I love fabric and I love seeing the newest lines by old and new favorite designers. And some of us have a yen for collecting all the shiny new tools and gadgets. Like you, I sometimes secretly dream about owning the newest edition of sewing machines by my favorite manufacturer.

But….what happens when our sewing space is so full of our precious stuff that we can’t find what we already have…so we buy more…..Or we keep looking at our fabric and say, ‘Some day, I’ll make a really special quilt with this…’

Would you like to learn simple and practical tips for getting a handle on your stash of fabric and tools?

Then Join Me in this Combination Live & Ondemand Workshop!

We will kick off our journey in a Live Zoom session on June 20th.  During this fast-paced session, I will start by sharing my strategies and where I am on my journey.  I’ll share some of the ways I overcome procrastination and feeling of overwhelm when I think about tackling my sewing space.  Then, we will break into small discussion groups and spend time exchanging ideas and experiences.   The group discussions will be focused on positivity and compassion—no shaming or blaming allowed.  We will focus on starting from wherever we are as we make incremental shifts in our beliefs and actions.

If you miss the kickoff session, you can view the presentation as a video recording in our private classroom.
