We have the details worked out for our Bill Stearman workshops in May.
Bill will teach his Double Disappearing 9-patch workshop on Tuesday, May 12 and Being Bold with Improv on Wednesday, May 13. He can teach 24 members each day. The fee for the workshops is $50 each day and they will be held at the Vittoria Community Centre.
We will start taking registrations on Tuesday, February 18 at 6pm by email. You should all have an email from Jan G with the details. This method of signing up is just like the postmark system we used in the days of snail mail. Set an alarm in your calendar app so you won’t forget and miss out!
You can check out Bill’s website/blog here, follow him on Instagram @bill_stearman (note the underscore) and Facebook as Bill Stearman.
Bill is an excellent speaker and teacher. Retired school principals and special ed teachers make the best quilting teachers. There is an additional $40 kit fee payable to Bill for his hand dyed coordinated fabrics for DD9P. They are all cut to the required sizes for all 3 variations he teaches so we don’t have to spend time selecting and cutting fabrics and have more time to play with the technique. You must buy the fabric kit from him. You can’t use your stash for this one.
Once members have signed up, they need to bring their money to their next guild meeting.
Bill’s Improv workshops follow the theme of breaking out of the “quilt police” jail some of us might be in! Free yourself with his help!
Bill will be presenting his Backpack Show at our meeting on Monday, May 11, at Old Windham Church, in Simcoe. Guests are welcome.
