I have always loved and treasured my time spent at the AQS Quilt Show and Patchwork Quilting Seminar held each spring in Lancaster, PA and Paducah, KY. If you have never gone, to these or their other in Knoxville and Des Moines, you need to! I promise you, you will never regret it!
Now, if you are a patchwork quilting teacher, is the time to apply to teach at any of their shows scheduled for next year. I have put some of the details below, but be sure to check out the AQS blog for all the particulars! The American Quilter’s Society is accepting applications from quilt instructors for the 2011 AQS Quilt Shows in Lancaster, PA (March 16 – 19); Paducah, KY (April 27 – 30); Knoxville, TN (July 13 – 16); and Des Moines, IA (Sept. 28 – Oct. 1).
Information on becoming an AQS instructor is available on the AQS Web site; click here. You will want to send your class information on the Instructor Application form also available on the Web site; one form for each class. The form is in pdf format and you can copy and paste information into it, save it, and e-mail to: Marcelle Cashon, Education Coordinator at marcelle@AQSquilt.com or mail the forms to: AQS, Attn: Marcelle Cashon, PO Box 3290, Paducah, KY 42002-3290.
Most classes are three hours in length so your best opportunity to teach is if you have a good variety of 3-hour classes from which to choose. Remember, quilters do not want to purchase a ton of supplies for a 3-hour class. Kits can be used with a recommended kit fee of $5 – $20. We are always looking for new techniques, and fun and colorful projects. Please send photos of your projects with your application form. Indicate your availability in a cover note when you send the application forms.
