I’m teaching at the 2015 NC Quilt Symposium

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching at the 2015 North Carolina Quilt Symposium May 28-31 in Flat Rock, NC, at the Bonclarken Conference Center. (Flat Rock is just outside Hendersonville, NC.) The 2015 event is sponsored by the Western North Carolina Quilter’s Guild. 

Don’t know about this event? Then you are missing out! Click here to learn more. This event is open to all quilters, and many quilters from many states attend each year. There is a great mix of classes, and something for everyone: traditional quilters, art quilters, surface designers, and modern quilters.

Usually, North Carolina Quilt Symposiums are held on college campuses, and students and teachers stay in dorms. So this event will be a bit different. What will stay the same is there will be a great lineup of nationally known teachers. I’ll post the list once it is finalized.

I’ll be teaching a 1-1/2 day class on wholecloth painting where students will work from their original photos; my 1-day Wholecloth Painting: Botanicals class; and I’ll be giving my “Thread Sketch it!” Lecture. You can read more about my classes and lectures on my website here.

Quilt Symposium has a website, and it also now has a blog, where news will be announced as soon as it is known. Another important feature of the blog is its list of North Carolina guilds. The draft of the list has been posted, so if you have information on your local NC guild, you should check it and make sure that everything is up to date. This will be a great resource for NC quilters when it is finalized.

Typically, class registrations start early in the new year. I’ll try to keep you posted when registrations are about to open.

So check it out and mark your calendar; I’d love to have you in one of my classes!
