Charlotte Quilt Symposium: registration is open!

Today is the first day you can mail your registration forms for North Carolina Quilt Symposium 2010! This year, symposium is in Charlotte, June 3-6. NCQS includes workshops with internationally known teachers, lectures, a quilt show and vendors, and lots of other fun activities.

Participants can stay in dorms at Johnson & Wales University in uptown Charlotte, or at hotels. I’ve heard that it is really fun to stay in the dorms, and at night, it is basically a great big pajama party, with lots of laughing, stitching and fun. I can’t wait!

It’s almost impossible to decide what workshops to take, with this lineup of teachers, offering everything from traditional piecing and applique to surface design techniques, thread painting, dyeing, and mixed media:

Charlotte Angotti
Cynthia Corbin
Melody Crust
Patti Culea
Kim Diehl
Karen Eckmeier
Ellen Anne Eddy
Robbi Joy Eklow
Flavin Glover
Bonnie Hunter
Janet Lasher
Susan Purney Mark
Velda Newman
Jenny Raymond
Paula Scaffidi
Pat Sloan
Karen Stone
Carol Taylor
David Taylor
Laura Wasilowski
Elin Waterson
Terry White

There really is something for every quilter’s ability level and interest.

The quilt I designed is the donation quilt for Symposium, and the pattern will be available for purchase there, with all proceeds benefiting the Symposum fund. It is called “Nothing Could Be Finer.”
