The following is a list of programs and workshops currently available from EvaPaige Quilt Designs and a brief description of each. Trunk shows and workshops are available to guilds and shops in the contiguous United States.
A lively presentation of Beth’s quiltmaking journey, from her first frighteningly awful attempt at self taught quilting to eventually founding EvaPaige Quilt Designs with her own line of unique patterns. Included are thoughts on the design process as it unfolds in 20 minute increments in the midst of the chaos of running a home and raising three small children, how a quilt can be a thing of beauty even without matching seams and perfect points, and the many joys of bringing her designs to the masses and discovering that they often can become converts to the freeing idea that “perfection is overrated”. Lecture Fee: $300
All workshops are priced at $350 for a six hour class with a short lunch break in the middle. Please ask about my discount for guilds who book both a lecture and workshop together.
In this workshop each participant will work to help complete four 36” square wall hanging sized quilts with a center block and three unique borders. Each participant will arrive with a completed 8 ½” (8” finished) block which reflects the theme and colors of their desired wall hanging. Working in three “rounds” or blocks of 1.5 hours per border, the style or technique of which is determined just prior to each round, participants will design, create and add each round’s border to a quilt belonging to different class participant, working on three other quilts in all. At the end of the workshop, each participant should have a completed 36” square quilt that reflects not only themselves but the unique ideas and approaches to quiltmaking of his/her fellow workshop participants. A willingness to allow others to dictate the direction of a piece you started and the abilities to work well in a time sensitive environment and to move from one task to another easily are requisite to this class, as well as the completion of the center block prior to class. For Intermediate level quilters and up only.
