North Carolina Quilt Symposium 2011

I hope you are all marking your calendars now for North Carolina Quilt Symposium 2011. It will be sponsored by Raleigh’s Capital Quilters Guild, and held at Peace College on June 2-5, 2011. It’s three days of classes, lectures, and fun, with everything from traditional piecing and appliqué, to beading, surface design and art quilting. I’m very excited that they’ve asked me to teach!

Here’s a list of the teachers they have lined up so far (a few more may be added):

And no, you don’t have to live in North Carolina to come to Symposium. If you live far away, you can fly in. Raleigh-Durham Airport is just a hop, skip, jump (or taxi ride) away from Peace College. Registration packets will be available in print and online in early January 2011. To receive a printed registration packet then, send  your mailing address and a check for $4 (payable to CQG Symposium  2011) to:
NCQS11
200 Transylvania Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27609

I hope to see you there!
