National Teacher

Spring/Fall 2024

Twice a year the Carson Valley Quilt Guild hosts a nationally known quilt educator for a weekend workshop and a lecture at the following Monday night meeting.  Class fees are quite reasonable for both members and non-members of the guild. It’s a unique opportunity to learn new quilting techniques from experts, enhance skills, and share the love of quilting and creating.  The workshops and lectures are open to guild members and the public when space is available.  We’d love for you to join us!

Once again the Guild will be hosting two nationally known teachers. March 23 and 24, 2024 David Sirota will join us with two online Zoom classes and will follow up with a lecture on March 25. David is a nationally known quilter from Manchester New Hampshire. We used traditional quilt patterns to learn his "No More Tears"© method of paper piecing. His method makes paper piecing easy to learn, faster and fun. 

On September 21 and 22, 2024 Jean Impey will join us for two workshops and a lecture on September 23. We have two different in-person workshops, "Twinkle" - liberated star blocks. You can learn how to assemble blocks of differnt sizes and shapes into a harmonious quilt. Or, on Sunday, "Monaco Magic." Use up your scraps with a flip and sew technique. Open the pdf below for Jean's sample photos, class dates/times, and fees.

Materials lists and registration materials will appear here as time for class sign ups draws near.
