QUILT North frequently sponsors workshops, which may be taught by visiting speakers, members of other guilds, or members of our own guild. Sign-up sheets are available at the monthly meetings and there is usually a limit to the number of participants at each workshop.
Sometimes there are cutoff dates for members to register; it is customary to invite members of nearby guilds to sign up if the quota of enrollees has not been met. You are asked to pay the workshop fee when you sign up in order to hold your place. There will be no refunds unless there is another participant to take your place.
Sign up early for the workshops you’d like to attend. You can do so at the workshops table during a meeting, or by emailing QUILT North.
Below are the exciting workshops kicking off the 2018-2019 guild year – sign up is currently open. Save your spot! Support guild activities! Details will be added as they are confirmed.
Unless otherwise indicated, workshops are held at the Elks Lodge, 695 Mac Elroy Road, Ballston Lake, NY 12019; look at the Directions page for how to get there.

“Landscape Quilting” with Sharon Bottle Souva
9 am to 3 pm
$45 members, $50 non members
At the Elks Lodge, 695 MacElroy Road, Ballston Lake, NY 12019
Combine your love of Mother Nature’s trees, mountains, etc. with your love of sewing. Join Sharon Bottle Souva’s workshop for a beginner’s exploration of landscape quilting. Sharon will guide you through the entire process, beginning with a simple sketch of your inspiration and ending with your very own impressionistic art quilt. You will learn how Sharon auditions fabrics and uses creative cutting and stitching to create depth and perspective.
You will also learn Sharon’s collage techniques–fusing, direct appliqué, and free motion quilting. You will walk away from this workshop with the skills and confidence to create more landscape quilts on your own at home.
