Our programs are the highlight of every meeting! We feature both nationally known and local quilting personalities as guest speakers. The Quilter's Guild of Dallas is proud to have hosted quilt artists including Pepper Cory, Laura Wasilowski, Diane Gaudynski, and Hollis Chatelaine.
 
Workshops are offered by guest speakers on Friday and/or Saturday following meetings. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn new techniques and improve quilting skills with some of the top quilters in the world at a minimal fee.
 
 
Note: You are not confirmed in a workshop until you get a reply from the Workshop Chairperson. Without that response, your email alone does not give you a registration in a workshop.

The title of her video demonstration is "Fabric Painting using Tsukineko ink, Memento Luxe and stamp pad ink."

Dallas Guild member Sherry Worley says this about her: Trish Stuart has been a great friend and influence upon my creativity for many years.  I am proud to call her a friend of mine and the Quilter’s Guild of Dallas.  Trish has generously agreed to allow us to present this video.  I hope that it will be a spark of joy and creativity in your life.

Trish Stuart has been a great friend and influence upon my creativity for many years.  I am proud to call her a friend of mine and the Quilter’s Guild of Dallas.  Trish has generously agreed to allow us to present this video.  I hope that it will be a spark of joy and creativity in your life.

Trish describes herself as a God loving, health conscious, compulsive creator who views life with a quirky sense of humor and with deep value for family and friendships. She also declares that she is also apparently, compelled to share everything I learn or discover about what you can creatively do with fabric.

She wants to help you find the tools and inspiration to try fabric painting, thread sketching, or adding machine embroidery. Trish firmly believes that we are all born with creativity in us and my goal is to help you become fluent at creating fabric art that is not only beautiful, but also useful. Quilts connect us to our family, friends, and allow us to extend our compassion and love to others in a meaningful way.  It's a practical, durable reminder of warmth, beauty, and hope. We can all use hope.

Guest Speaker (online):

Laura Winckel
Harker Heights, TX

Program Topic:

Quilting with Leather

Our speaker, Laura Winckel has gone from what was simply a hobby 25 years ago to becoming a master of custom quilting, opening her own business seven years ago. Her talent is evident with numerous awards from competitive quilt shows including “The Wildflower Quilt Show Texas” “The Texas Quilt Show” and “Crossroads to Texas Quilt Show”.

Additionally, her designs and work with Quilts of Valor have been featured in Tex Appeal magazine and The Killeen Daily Herald. The aspect of orchestrating these beautiful custom quilts that Laura treasures most is witnessing the comfort these creations bring to clients during times of mourning and loss.

No workshops this month.


How to sign up for a workshop:

Check with the workshop coordinator to find out whether space is available in a workshop you are interested in, and/or where a given workshop will be held. Space is always limited and attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore it is always a good idea to register early! Although we cannot take your workshop registration by email, you can obtain information and send us registration materials by mail.
Workshop fees help to offset the costs that we incur when we host out-of-town guest speakers. They also offer our membership a wonderful opportunity to learn new techniques and improve their quilting skills with some of the top quilters in the world. (And if you compare our fees with the fees for the similar classes at major quilt festivals, you'll see what a great deal you'll be getting!)
Some workshops will be "project" classes, where attendees will work on a specific project that the presenter has designed. Others will be "process" classes, where you learn techniques without necessarily having a project to complete.
Every time you attend a guild workshop, you can have your Quilter's Dozen card punched. After you attend 12 workshops, you'll get one one-day workshop free! What a deal! There is no expiration on these cards - just remember to bring it along or start a new one.
The guild has established guidelines for workshops, as well as some simple "rules of etiquette" to ensure that the workshop experience is enjoyable for everyone. Be sure to take a moment to review these items:
