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!!

A fully signed contract (Linda's) will secure the dates.  Supply lists will be sent approximately (6) months prior to Linda's visit. 

Linda is willing to visit multiple guilds on the same trip.  Please check with other guilds in your area - or along the route - to share expenses.

Lectures

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.

New York Beauty State of Mind - MOST REQUESTED

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. 

Rock That Quilt Block!

Through an extensive trunk show, Linda shares her concept on how to "Rock" a block.  Change a color, rotate a patch, or perhaps divide a patch and you have a whole new "flavor" for the block.  

Sometimes combining several rocked blocks give you suprise secondary or terciary patterns - depending on the colors used!

A real eye opener!!

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.  

Workshops

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.

TASTE OF NEW YORK (New York Beauty Diversified)

For the Intermediate Quilter - Whole or Half Day - Machine Class

Students may choose the version of this quilt that they wish to do.  The difference being the fabric placement and block orientation that creates different illusions.

Both projects feature "split" (two fabric) pie and background shapes that require a little more precision piecing - but Linda takes the stress out of the process with her simple methods. 

Workshop projects are variations on the Brighton Beach Bazaar quilt designed by Helle May Cheney for Linda's award winning book - New York Beauty Diversified (AQS 2013)
