Lectures, Fees and Contract
Classes and Workshops:
In my workshops, the emphasis is always on self-confidence, a sense of adventure, persistence and inspirational motivation for the student. I am available to teach in the USA and internationally.
Lectures are approximately one hour in length and I will conduct a question and answer period after the lecture. I will make every attempt to bring as many quilts with me as possible to share with my audience.
“Nurturing Your Creative Spirit: Personal Traits That Inspire Great Quilts”
Passion, humor, persistence, faith in your work, courage...these five qualities and others all play a role in your creative life. What does it take to be a great quilter?? I discuss how I learned important life lessons...sometimes the hard way…through quiltmaking. (This is my most popular lecture…trunk or slide show depending)
"When I Grow Up I Want To Be a Quilter"
For years I tried many different crafts and explored art in all mediums. One day I realized there was a benefit to this crazy urge to try new and different things. I talk about how everything learned from past projects are contributing to and enriching my work in my quilts today. (Slide show)
"Interpretations of a Nature Lover"
Endlessly inspired and awed by the beauty and color of my surroundings, this lecture/slide presentation parallels my love of nature and how I interpret it in my quiltmaking.
A note regarding class fees: I figure my class fee a bit differently
than most teachers. I charge per person (per day) for classes rather
than a set flat rate. For instance, my class rate is currently $37.50
per student. The minimum fee I charge for a class is $37.50 x 16
(minimum) = $600. For 20 students the price would be $37.50 x 20 = $750.
The exceptions to this price structure are quilt shows when I will
charge a flat fee for classes. I found this structure is beneficial to
quilt guilds, especially those with smaller memberships. For more
