Do you find Workshops too long and Talks too short?

Why not consider my new DEMO DAYS! ?

By popular demand I have added a series of demonstrations to my normal Workshop offerings. 


I would come to your group or shop and do a number of short, say 60, 90 or 120 minute demos through the day.


These demos would allow the maximum number of students to participate.  The numbers would only be limited by your venue.


I believe the demos would be of real interest to a wider audience than the normal workshops, particulary for the younger or beginner quilters who are perhaps intimidated by a full blown workshop.  And also to those who are unable to devote the whole day to a class.


The topics I offer are:

  • An Introduction to Rotary Cutting, Machine Piecing and Pressing.
  • Basic Machine Quilting
  • Machine Applique - Satin Stitch and Blanket Stitch
  • Everything You Need To Know About Needles & Threads
  • The Wonders of Waddings
  • Mitred Borders & Bindings
  • Getting The Most Out Of Your Sewing Machine

I envisage you making it a full social event.  Why not offer Coffee & cupcakes?  Shops can offer a days discount on shopping for the participants.  I will bring an assortment of quilts to put on desplay and will certainly have time to inter-react with your guests between demos.


You are welcome to tailor make your day but here are three suggestions.


Two 120 min Demos:

  1. 10-12
  2. 1-3


Three 90 min Demos:

  1. 9:30 -11
  2. 12-1:30
  3. 2-3:30

Four 60 min Demos:

  1. 9:30 - 10:30
  2. 11 - 12
  3. 1 - 2
  4. 2:30 - 3:30


The actual content of each demo will be determined by the time frame you choose.  Participants will not be sewing but they will each go home with a "goodie bag" filled with useful information, notes pertaining to her demo and a free spool of thread!
