Workshop time!

You’ve been asking for more classes and we’ve been listening. In fact, Allison has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you not one, not two, but three teachers (and four classes!) in the next few months. How’s that for exciting? We may also talk to Christina Cameli about a follow up weekend if there is enough interest.

But first things first. Are you ready to hear about the classes? We are really excited to have Krista Withers, local longarm quilting magician, teach us her Modern Wholecloth Quilting Compositional Drawing class. She’ll be teaching this same class at Quiltcon in February. How great is it that we get her first! This class will be held on Sunday, November 15th 10:30 – 4:45 at Quality Sew in Tukwila. For Seattle MQG members, it’s only $40 plus materials or a kit you can purchase directly from Krista at class for $20. Such a great deal. Register here. UPDATE: The class is now open to everyone and is $45

Our second class is all about curved piecing from another great local teacher, Jenny Pedigo. Jenny is the creator of the Quick Curve Ruler and the many patterns that go along with it. On Saturday November 28th 10:30 – 5:30, we’ll be learning how to use this ruler while we make one of her newest patterns, Chic Country. This pattern is not yet released but will be in time for class and will also be provided to you as part of the $50 class fee. Quiltworks Northwest will have them ready for us when we arrive to set up for class. Register for this one here.
For both of these classes, payment is required at the time of registration and your spot is not confirmed until you have paid. Please keep this in mind when signing up. Both forms are set to close after the alloted number of students (24 for Krista, 25 for Jenny) so please do not fill out the form until you are ready to pay and do not submit it more than once. Contact Allison if you’re having trouble with the form. These classes are open only to Seattle MQG members for now but we will open them to non-members up 2 weeks prior to each class if any spots remain.
So, that leaves 2 more classes and 1 teacher to cover, huh? We are super excited to welcome Libs Elliott to Seattle next February, the weekend after Quiltcon. She will be teaching us the same two classes she is teaching there. I’ll have more information (and signups!) next weekend but if you’d like more info ahead of time, check out her class descriptions here (search for Libs) to see if you’d like to take one. Registration will be first come, first served and limited to one of Libs’ two classes so that more people have a chance to work with her while she’s here. There will also be a lecture open to the whole guild. Again, more info next weekend.
That’s all for now. Ready, set, register!

  1. This is great news, Allison! Thank you for the hard work behind these workshops. Mark down one vote for another Christina Cameli workshop. I wasn’t able to attend the first one.
