How to Teach a Quilt Class

Page Content: 

In this webinar, we'll cover the who, what, where, when and why of teaching a quilt class. (Not necessarily in that order!) If you've always thought about teaching but haven't taken the plunge yet, this class will give you some of the basics and hopefully the confidence to take that first step. If you have a few classes under your belt, consider taking things to the next level by teaching regionally or nationally. And if you're a seasoned quilt teacher, join us anyway! Happy to have you along, and you might learn something new.

I've been sewing since my teens and quilting for more than 25 years. My first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. Since I had a king-sized bed, it made sense to me to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in shades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid '80s!) Let's just say my fabric tastes have changed since then! I consider myself a modern quilter with traditional roots. I'm the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and love speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. I'm foremost a teacher. I teach modern quilting classes in local shops and guilds across the country as well as with the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo! I've also written many tutorials for my own blog, and other popular quilting blogs such as Sew Mama, Sew!, Henry Glass and Moda Bake Shop. In the fall of 2013, I got to attend my first quit market to promote my book Classic Modern Quilts. You can also find some of my quilt blocks in past issues of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. Most recently, I was honored to have a quilt featured in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood.
