SCHEDULING a class with Linda
Linda's classes are fun and empowering. She takes what looks complicated and breaks it down into easy to understand and "do-able" steps. Be ready to learn a lot and laugh a bunch!!
SHARING DISCOUNTS - Linda offers discounts to guilds who share her in one trip. The first guild that books her receives $100 discount. Each subsequent guild who books her will receive a $50 discount. The booking program chair receives his or her kit/pattern for the class(es) as a gift from Linda. Linda also donates one of her books to the guild library. So, you'll save on fees in addition to saving on expenses.
All lectures are 1 hour - 1 1/2 hours. I bring as many quilts as possible (depending on mode of travel) which can be passed around the room.
Don't Quit your Day Job....Yet!
Don’t let the title mislead you into thinking this presentation is just for those looking to make money from quilting - FAR FROM IT. Linda takes you behind the scenes for a look at many areas of the quilting industry.
Most quilters have no idea how their favorite quilt books go from concept to quilter or the process of getting fabric to their cutting tables. What's all the hub-bub with copyright? Why are quilt shops going out of business? Why are teachers so expensive? What's it like to be a traveling teacher? Why do quilt shop owners never get to sew? Let's talk...attendees provide the questions (and believe me, they do) and Linda will answer WITH NO SUGAR COATING.
If you’re looking for a program with out of the norm, different and interesting content, then this is the one for you! Linda will speak until all questions are answered.
Electric Quilt 101
In this presentation, you’ll learn the basics of designing, coloring and printing a quilt from the popular Electric Quilt software. We’ll cover settings, layouts, blocks, colorings, printing. You’ll have plenty to get you started enjoying all that this software has to offer.
New York Beauty State of Mind
In this entertaining presentation, Linda discusses the inspiration behind the AQS Bestseller “New York Beauty Simplified”, the experience with the book writing and publishing process, as well as the “stories” behind each of the quilts and their makers in the book. Linda brings all or most of the quilts from the book.
Quilters leave this lecture raring to go home and begin cutting into their precious stash! Linda shows many quilts made from the fabric from her stash - no additional purchase needed. She shows how to look at a piece of fabric and imagine the possibilities. Linda will also discuss a new way to look at quilt patterns so that you can use your stash instead of purchased yardage.
Most of my workshops can be offered as full day or half day presentations in that they are technique oriented. You are welcome to request two half day workshops in place of a full day.
