Working Together: Collaboration in Quilting

Is your guild looking for new ways to work in community? Drawing on the strengths of fellow quilters can take your work to the next level. In this 45 minute lecture/trunk show, Ellyn shares different ways quilters can work in collaboration with other quilters and artists of different mediums. She shares more than 20 of her own quilts made through an assortment of collaborative methods and offers suggestions for finding your own way in the collaborative process.

This lecture is offered as a Zoom talk for your group or, in appropriate times, I will happily travel to meet with your guild in person. 

Quilts that Talk


We all know that quilts tell stories all on their own, but Ellyn has a special passion for quilts with actual words in their construction. In this 45 minute lecture/trunk show, she shares different ways she has incorporated words into her quilts. You will get to see about 20 of her own talking quilts and get new ideas on how to start using words in your own quilting.

This lecture is offered as a Zoom talk for your group or, in appropriate times, I will happily travel to meet with your guild in person. 


Lecture fees:

Zoom or in person lecture: approximately 45 minutes. $250

Zoom lectures may not be recorded by your guild. 

In person lectures require the ability for Ellyn to share a slide show from her laptop. She will also bring as many actual quilts to share as possible. In person lectures will also require travel and lodging fees to be negotiated by each group

Workshops

Improv Log Cabin/Speedy Round Robin

These two half day workshops can be attended independently but are most fun done as a pair. In the first workshop, lasting about 3 hours, attendees will construct improv log cabin blocks with fabrics of their choice. Ellyn offers lots of tips for color placement, construction and variations. 
After a break for lunch, workshop #2 is a fun, in person round robin using the log cabin blocks made in the first workshop (those who did not choose to attend #1 can bring a premade log cabin block from home). Be ready for a fun afternoon with lots of laughs! At the end of the day, your log cabin block is returned to you looking totally different than it began.

Workshop fees:

Currently this workshop is offered as a pair only for $350. Up to 20 people can attend.
This workshop is only offered in person and  is currently on hold because of COVID19.
