WORKSHOPS 2024-2025

Your Journey to Quilting Mastery Begins Here!

The Annapolis Quilt Guild offers several workshops each year, covering a variety of techniques and projects. We strive to bring in widely recognized instructors while keeping the cost to attend affordable. Details on class fees, supplies and any pre-class preparation are noted in each workshop description.

Workshops are generally held on the first Monday of the month, with the workshop presenter giving a related lecture at that evening's guild meeting. Workshops may be held in-person, at the Severna Park Community Center, or via zoom.

Workshops are open to non-guild members for an additonal $10 fee.

Online registration and payment is preferred, but we also accept checks if mailed in or brought to a meeting along with a copy of the mail-in registration form (Workshop Registration Form).

Indi-Go-Modern

Monday, November 4, 2024

10am-4pm, zoom

The lure of indigo is strong — the classic blue and white combination found in many Japanese textiles is cool, crisp, and so appealing. This is the class to use all those lovely blue and white shibori fabrics or any other carefully curated blue and white fabrics from your stash. Each participant will develop a simple geometric block design based on unfolded origami shapes, set a theme and create variations, and combine them into the beginning of a fresh and modern mini quilt top. Easy to advanced variations available!

Fast Piecing with Seminole Techniques

Sunday, February 2, 2025

Rachel will teach an introduction to this piecing technique originally developed by Native Americans. Students will be creating units that are cut from long strips, and then sewn together and remade in a Seminole pattern. The strips can be very colorful and are suitable to be used in a small quilt, wall hanging, or as an accent to brighten up a garment.

Mock Molas & Sashiko

Monday, April 7, 2025

9am-3pm, in-person

Two handwork classes that explore unique needlework styles but are easy and relaxing to do! Sashiko is a traditional Japanese needlework technique that is easy to do and offers endless creative opportunities. Traditional molas from Panama are beautiful, but require layers of fabric and small, detailed stitching. Alice created this class to modify the Traditional Mola by using Felt to make a project that keeps the style and colors of the original, but is so much easier and faster!
