Technique Sharing Workshops

Technique Sharing Workshops (TSW for short) are free, and take place at our guild meetings, beginning after the lunch break and lasting between 30 min. and 2 hours, depending on the topic. These workshops, led or taught by our own members on a volunteer basis, give our members a chance to share, learn and practice various special techniques related to quilting.

Please sign up for these demonstrations in advance, so that we may be sure to have the correct number of handouts, and plan for an appropriate space.

The Home Page Calendar includes the 2018 Technique Sharing Workshops. 

Previous TSW handouts are available on the Blog under the "TSW" , "Patterns" and "Mystery Quilt" categories.

If you have a technique you'd like to share, please let me know! I will have a sign-up sheet with the tentative dates schedule for TSW's in the back room.

Many Thanks!
