Small guild? Big idea!
There are hundreds of small quilt guilds all over the world.
And I know firsthand that their programming is limited by their budgets. So I’ve come up with a plan to make it easier for smaller groups to book a program with Stash Bandit (that’s me!).
Here’s how it will work.
The live presentation will be virtual through Zoom.
Available to groups with 50 or fewer members on their paid roster (honor system).*
The fee for a one-hour trunk show of your choice is $10/person on the roster. For example, if you have 35 members, $10 x 35 = $350. (The standard fee is $525.)
You will be guaranteed a seat for every person who registers for the meeting on Zoom.
I will make the remaining seats available to others.
The deadline for your members to register for the meeting is 10 days before. This gives me time to fill the rest of the seats.
For very small groups, I may request a date other than your normal meeting time.
I will limit the number of these programs I do each year.
Does that sound good? 😊
Please share this info with the program chair at your quilt group.
I have six trunk shows from which to choose. Today I’ll highlight three.
Windy Wonders: A Quilt Block Grows Up
is one of my favorites because it’s all about creativity. I’ve taken one simple block and made dozens of quilts by tweaking it in different ways.
I love watching the light bulbs come on for quilters when they catch the excitement of this program. There’s no end to the variations.
I won’t live long enough to make all of the quilts in my idea folder, but I’m going to try.
Taste Test: Unexpected Sampler Quilts
is a newer program, and I had so much fun making these quilts. No longer just blocks in rows, samplers are dynamite for building your skills and using your stash.
Many of these quilts are my own designs but there are fabulous pieces designed by others, too.
I share many ideas for making sampler quilts of your own, and show you enough examples to get your blood pumping!
Whatever your quilt style, you’ll find something to love in the Taste Test trunk show.
Let’s Play Drezzup
is a trunk show that just keeps growing! Dresden Plate has enjoyed a comeback in the past few years and there’s a lot to see.
My Dresden Plate love affair began with 20 vintage blocks. From them I made the quilt above called All Drezzed Up.
In this trunk show, you’ll see many examples of what works and what doesn’t. The styles abound. I share the most common problems seen in Dresden quilts and ways to solve them. It’s easy to get lost in Dresden Plate but it’s the best kind of lost, believe me.
If you belong to a group with 50 or fewer members, I’d love to cut you a deal. Give me a call.
* What I mean by the honor system is that I’m going to trust you to be honest with me about the number of people on your roster. 😊
