Lecture: Creative You
This “lecture covers all kinds of ways to become more creative. Mary Lou explains avenues of creativity, the personality of the creative person and how you can stretch and become more creative with your thoughts and your quilts. Prepare to be inspired and to go away thinking of things you want to do to be a new "creative YOU."
2 Day Workshop: Self Portraits
This class has become very popular and in fact has taken many quilter’s self portraits to Museums for shows. Step out of the box and learn about yourself and how you can put ideas and things you had not thought of before into a quilt to leave a lasting impression about who you are and what is important to you. These quilts become legacy pieces that can tell others imaginative, fun and creative things. It might even surprise you to see how wonderful a self-portrait of YOU can be.

How to sign up for a workshop:
Check with the workshop coordinator to find out whether space is available in a workshop you are interested in, and/or where a given workshop will be held. Space is always limited and attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, it is always a good idea to register early! Although we cannot take your workshop registration by email, you can obtain information and send us registration materials by mail.
Workshop fees help to offset the costs that we incur when we host out-of-town guest speakers. They also offer our membership a wonderful opportunity to learn new techniques and improve their quilting skills with some of the top quilters in the world. (And if you compare our fees with the fees for the similar classes at major quilt festivals, you'll see what a great deal you'll be getting!)
Some workshops will be "project" classes, where attendees will work on a specific project that the presenter has designed. Others will be "process" classes, where you learn techniques without necessarily having a project to complete.
Every time you attend a guild workshop, you can have your Quilter's Dozen card punched. After you attend 12 workshops, you'll get one one-day workshop free! What a deal! There is no expiration on these cards - just remember to bring it along or start a new one.
The guild has established guidelines for workshops, as well as some simple "rules of etiquette" to ensure that the workshop experience is enjoyable for everyone. Be sure to take a moment to review these items:
