The Professional Quilter Magazine - Contest



I have 6 issues of The Professional Quilter magazine to give away!  The Spring 2013 issue includes an article about the 2013 Teacher of the Year, Mimi Dietrich, and the other nominees for this year (including ME).  This information packed magazine also includes a studio tour with longarm quilter, Elaine Huff, how to use your iPad when 'on the road', book reviews and MORE. 


Since the focus of this issue is the Teacher of the Year, I thought I should come up with something 'education-focused' for the contest.  I decided to keep it very simple....
 
What is the next quilting class you want to take and why?  It could be to learn a technique, it could be with a particular instructor, it could be that you just want to get out of the house! 
 
Post a comment here and I'll use a random number-generator to select 6 people to win The Professional Quilter magazine.  Post your comment today - deadline is July 15th.
 
Good luck to all!

I would like to take a longarm repair class. I have a machine I purchased a few years ago, and tension is a nightmare, I have lots of tops ready to complete!

My next quilting class: a color workshop given by the very talented owner of my LQS. No color wheel, just how to select fabrics that work together and why they work, plus what to add to really make the palette zing. Why? Fun, learn something useful, enjoy the class, enhance my stash...What's not to love?!

Patricia Belyea is teaching in town in a few weeks but I haven't the $ to take the class. Trying hard not to think about it.

I need to learn more about the HQ Prostitcher.

I would love to take a machine quilting class. I can do some basics, but probably would be better equipped if I took a class. Thanks for sharing the magazines.

Jan Baker said...

I would love more information on long arms, what works best for people and the most easiest to keep running.

I am in full agreement with one of the other posters here. I would LOVE to have a class on color choices and fabrics selection. Not just on color pairing, but the hows and whys of fabric choices and the ways they work together. Why certain fabrics work better in certain patterns, etc. Looking forward to seeing if something along these lines pops up! Thanks Daphne!

I've been longing to take a machine quilting class that deals with the proper needles, changes in tension, feet attachments, as well as the actual machine stitching. Something hands on, with my own machine, not just demonstration on a teachers machine.

I am teaching a one-day Machine Quilting class at Houston Quilt Festival this fall - anyone want to join me? Registration will be open online on July 15th. Go to: www.quilts.com and you'll find the links

Not sure if someone is going a colour class there too - you can see the complete brochure online now so you can plan a trip!!

Hi Daphne -

You really got me thinking with this question. I think what I woudl REALLY like is an introductory class on use of the Sweet Sixteen machine....of course that would require that I first purchase a Sweet Sixteen for myself! It IS on my bucket list...but there's no harm in dreaming, right?

I would love some hands-on instruction in paper-piecing or a weekend to play around with art quilts.

I would like to take a class on making a baby quilt from fat quarters in celebration of my first grandchild coming in October.
