Are You Rethinking Quilt Events This Fall?

All of our social quilting events have come to a grinding halt. I was in the middle of an Atlanta teaching event for the Sewing Expo when the last day was abruptly cancelled (March 13, a Friday. - Hey, Friday the 13th really was bad this year, right?)

My Saturday class, Flying Swallows, never happened.
Flying Swallows with NO templates or y-seams!
And then 6 more contracts were cancelled. Whew! I totally understood, but that certainly knocked the wind out of me.

I have created a quick, 6 question SURVEY to find out YOUR thoughts on plans for Fall quilting events. What safety features do you need? What's your guild doing? And you can even leave me comments. I'm not tracking anyone, honest.

I'd love to hear from you. If you are on my MailChimp list, then you already got the info. No need to take it twice. I would really appreciate it if you could give me your feedback.

Just because I know you like quilt pics here, I'll show you the classes that were cancelled or put on hold:

Ezekiel's Crown is a paper piecing class which was scheduled for a guild in Frederick, Maryland.

Pyramids and Jewels is a 2-for-1 class that was scheduled for a Fredericksburg, Virginia guild.

And the leftovers from Thousand Pyramids are the basis for the afternoon class, Fractured Jewels.

Modern Vortex was scheduled for a New Jersey guild.

And there are 4 other classes from the Lakeland, Florida and Cleveland, Ohio OSQE Shows. And then there are the 3 classes from the MAQ retreat in Gettysburg, PA. But I'm hopeful these can be rebooked.

Let me know YOUR THOUGHTS about attending any quilting events in the near future. Thank you!


  1. I would attend a workshop or retreat for my local guild, but I don't think I'm ready to attend any large shows.
    Do you offer Ezekiel's Crown in a pattern? That is a beautiful quilt!

  2. I agree with Janet, above. I would wear a face mask at the show and in class. I would want hand sanitizer available in restrooms and classrooms.

  3. I don't think I will feel completely comfortable until there is a vaccine!

  4. Hi Debby! I sure wish I could take your Pyramids and Jewels classes! What pretty two-for-one quilts. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. I'd like to know what other Guilds are doing. As planner for the year I have cancelled through the end of June plus our Oct quilt show is cancelled. Not sure what to do with the rest of my year. Any thoughts?
