Intriguing Interleaves: A Zoom Workshop with Mel Beach, Part 1

Zoom Meeting

Unlock the fun and intrigue of Lorrie Cranor’s Interleave quilts in this two-part Zoom workshop. Mel Beach will reveal all the secrets for creating the illusion of curves and transparency using only straight-line stitching. Best of all, Interleave quilts are assembled using a quilt-as-you-go technique, so your unique Interleave quilt will be pieced and quilted at the same time! Learn more about Mel Beach on her web site and her blog, and follow her on Instagram @melbeachquilts and Facebook, Mel Beach Quilts. Part 1: Saturday July 10, from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Part 2: Saturday July 17, from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Cost: $55 for SFQG members Registration: This workshop is currently FULL.

Workshops are open to all Guild members on a ‘first-come’ basis. One must register with payment to confirm participation. Workshops are publicized to Guild members first, and members have the benefit of several months of promotion to register before any non-Guild members may register. Two months prior to the Workshop, the Workshop will be offered to the public, at a non-Guild member rate. For the Guild to host professional instructors we need to cover instructor costs and therefore once an individual is registered there are no cancellations/refunds. Members may "transfer" their registration to another member; the Guild and its workshop chairs will not be responsible for this exchange and all arrangements and funds will be exchanged between the individual guild members. Once a member has found someone to exchange with, they are responsible for notifying the Guild chairs so that the appropriate attendee will be notified of all class information.
